FSO - Patriotic

Easy for those in the USA as this topic comes right after their Independence Day..

I'd say Waitangi Day is the day in New Zealand that comes closest to Independence Day although we celebrate our days quite differently.

Māori cultural performances are always part of the activities.  This is the Kapa Haka group at our local school.



I'm looking forward to seeing how those from other countries interpret this topic.  They will be here.

  4. I think it's so important to include the Maori and their cultural heritage in Waitangi Day.

  5. Lovely costume! It's just the same here, when we have a National Day show, there must be performances from all races here.
