Kia Ora! In Act 3 of the popular evening show, HĀ: Breath of Life, we are introduced to the beautiful and powerful Māori culture of Aotearoa (New Zealand). The emphasis of this section is on Mana (the main character) being nurtured and trained by his family and community. We see his transition from child to man, setting the stage for a future filled with honor, skill, courage and love. Read the full blog here!
