Friday was the end of the school year, So of course it’s only fitting we have the Government Primary school end of year concert for our village kids.

Thought I might share a couple of photos of it with you to see if you may find this interesting.

  1. Thanks for dropping by!

    Those costumes are pretty and interesting. What are they made of?

  2. They are made from the bark of hiapo (Mulberry) tree. We strip the bark off the brunches and then pound it till it’s about 4 times as wide which takes a lot of hours maybe 2 days just to get the bark to that thickness. Then we stick the pieces of bark together using a paste made by a root vegetable manioke and water. we then paint and protect the work, and make clothes out of it. The materiel is called ngatu or tapa.
    I will write a whole post on this in the future and go deeper into the process and meanings.

  3. the kids look fantastic! reminds me of growing up in new zealand, I loved the rare opportunity to watch Maoris dance and the haka still sends shivers down my spine

  5. Those costumes are beautiful
