The Waiata - A Song in Your Heart - Day 4

Hello Blogging world! Today is day 4 almost the last activity on week 1! Do you like singing to songs or listening to them you maybe like these traditional Maori songs they use to listen to them when they were younger. We listen to a lot of these songs and they are called " Waiata," and find our favourite one! Here is a link if you want to know more about Waiatas click here. Here is my favourite Waiata.

There it is! Do you like it, maybe comment down below your favourite Waiata? From making this blog post I learnt what a Waiata is and how graceful the songs are. I like this particular Waiata because, it is very upbeat and sounds amazing when you are in time! It was hard to find my favourite Waiata because all of them sound so good! It was easy to say why I like this song because our school use to use this song for Kapa Haka. Next time I will try explain what a Waiata is using my own words. I have really enjoyed making this log post because I like listening to music. Bye! Bye! Blogging world! 


  1. Hey Amie,

    Wow, this song took me back to my school days and I absolutely loved it. You have chosen a powerful and emotional waiata to talk about. Did you have a chance to read the lyrics? When I was reading the information and watching the Waiouru Army boys performing the waiata, I felt the meaning behind the lyrics and was able to understand it better. When do you think a tribe would sing this waiata?

    Have a read of this page as it has more information about 'Tei iwi e'.

    Awesome work Amie,
    Megan :)

    1. Hey Megan, I didn't have the chance to read the lyrics yet but I will. Wow the page taught me much more about the Te Iwi E Waiata. Thanks for commenting!
