1005 – Te Ao Haka ki te Ao

Jamus Webster’s tribal affiliations are Te Arawa, Ngāpuhi, Tūhoe and Te Whānau ā-Apanui. He’s a Te Ao Haka teacher at Raukura: Rotorua Boys’ High School, well-known nationally and internationally through his knowledge and expertise in TAH.   

In this presentation, Jamus showcases Te Ao Haka as a culturally responsive art form, providing opportunities for all ākonga to engage in Māori culture, language, and traditional practice. He explains how the recent inclusion of TAH in the Achievement Standard network at levels 1, 2 and 3 and innovative methods of assessment are inspiring ākonga to engage in learning across the curriculum.
