Fierce Gate Pa haka

Gate Pa hill has this afternoon virtually been transported to a time 150 years ago when Maori warriors and British soldiers clashed in what was to become a historic event to form the creation of Tauranga city. Hundreds of Maori dressed in traditional gear and handling weapons of the time have come together to perform a powerful haka, in commemoration of the Battle of Gate Pa which happened on the same hill all those years ago.
