A muri ake i tētahi paku whakatā, ka hoki mai anō te wāhanga o Ngā Taonga. Ka hoki ki mua ki 1972 ki te Whetiwara Poronīhia tuatahi ki te whakarongo ki te āhua o te kapahaka o te wā me te kite i ngā kākano i whakatōngia i aua tau kua hua mai ai i ēnei tau. After a short hiatus, Ngā Taonga returns to our regularly scheduled programming. We go back in time to 1972 to the first Polynesian Festival to listen to the style of kapahaka of the time and to witness the seeds planted then that have since borne fruit in today.
