    Dicky Boys' High kapa haka group to be immersed in Thai culture



    Palmerston North Boys' High School is sending a kapa haka and Māori cultural group on its first tour of Thailand to immerse itself in overseas culture.
    The kapa haka group, made up of 21 students and two teachers, leaves this weekend for the two-week trip. They will perform at schools and look to strengthen relationships between Boys' High and Thai schools.
    The school's head of te reo Māori Josh Strickland said he went to Thailand about eight years ago and had spent the past two years planning a return.
    "It was a big eye-opener for me. When I came back we thought we need to do a tour and go back over there."




    The group will put on about eight performances, will visit primary and secondary schools, and do some sight seeing.
    "The whole point of going over there is to immerse themselves with what Thailand is, their traditions and their culture, and be able to come back and just appreciate Aotearoa and what they have."
    Students going on the trip have to take a te reo class or a Māori performing arts class.
    Sports teams from the school going on overseas tours are common, but this is the first overseas tour for a Boys' High kapa haka group.
    "We have a lot of kapa haka groups around New Zealand that go to Europe. But this might be the first tour to Thailand. We don't know."

    No natural NZ culture save incest so they appropriate a cannibal culture.

    Is it a requirement to be podgy/fat/out of condition to perform these haka-taka-kapa things? 'Cos most of those lads look like they've eaten too many chip-butties.

    The podgy lad in the middle of the first photo has scary eyes....

    My last marriage was to a kiwi. Took me for everything. So no longer stay silent about the Haka and how NZ has the best sportsmen in the world. Also that her family was a bunch of dumbfucks who were mentally unstable not "gifted"

    And that incest is the national sport not rugby. I could go on as I have cruel exact opinions backed up by facts on most groups. But theres no point in ranting. I would be just the lunatic on the street yelling and proclaiming his madness. Believe what you will but when did the middle class pakeha's (thats what we're called) start adopting Maori "greeting customs" ?
