Tuhoe Ahurei

Tuhoe Ahurei the Biggest Event on the Tuhoe calender held bi-annually in Ruatoki with all pohiri held at the Te Rewarewa Marae.

Always amazing, always huge, always a crowd drawer.

Revered right around the world, attended now for over forty years by over a million people and still going strong. A million you say, pretty close to it don't you think.

Our hats off to those who organize and manage the event. BUT hey people............ they need your support no matter where on the globe you are. Support them here as well and pass comment, post picture's, post video's, post your say on the internet and share your story.



2011 is the year we celebrate 40 years of unity and cultural activities that Tuhoe have been holding the Tuhoe Festival. 2011 will be the year to enjoy this festive time.

Kia Ora!

Gosh! The Tuhoe Ahurei (2005) just blew me away completely! Sad to see my brother was at the back of his group but all was good.

One thing I've just got to say: Never in my life have I ever come across Maori performance such as the Tuhoe Ahurei!

I'd rather go to those than the kapa haka festival itself, too plastic if you ask me.

Ka kite.

Tena koutou katoa,

He tuku mihi tenei ki nga kaiwhakahaere o tenei hui Ahuirei i tu i tenei tau rua mano ma whitu.

Ka pai ki te kite atu i neke hea nga toa hoko kai me nga toa hoko t-hate ki muri o te papa whakatu waewae, a, ahakoa kaare i kite a kanohi i nga roopu e whakataetae ana, i reira tetahi pouaka whakaata hei tiro ma nga kaihokohoko.

Just need to open up the arena a bit more so that everyone can have a seat and watch in comfort.

No reira, well done te hau kainga.

Yes, well the Ahurei was ok! I believe it could have been a little better, as I have seen it better in the past, as for the number of people that have suppose to have attended wasn't as much as what was said in the paper, I think it was exaggerated big tym!! I would like to think that the next Ahurei will be held in Waimana, as both tyms that it was held there it was the bomb.

The ahurei was MEAN as always, Not sure about the comment above, it takes a lot of hard work to organise a successful event like this so you should be grateful that its still going strong and look at the positives! Love the ahurei in Ruatoki, the facilities are good there....it really doesn't matter where it is as long as we're all in the same place together...bring on the next Ahurei...can't wait!!

Tuhoe Hard!!

Tuhoe Ahurei is a great whanau outing meet up with extended whanau and friends. Unfortunately one of the downfalls that I see there is in the judging panel. I think that it is time that the festival look at reviewing there judges, they need to look at getting new judges that are not affiliated to any of the performing roopu. I enjoy going to our ahurei as my whanau and I are performers.

Tena koutou

I note that the big celebration for this year's ahurei was to be it's
40th, that sure sounded exciting to be a part of that, however it was not to be. The big event turned out to be a big fizz, and those roopu that were prepared for this event were not acknowledged for their efforts. I say gud on to those roopu who were in the spirit of the kaupapa.
