Kia kaha! Kia kaha! Together, standing strong. We join our hands in friendship, thats how we get along. All around our gentle land, no matter where were from ... we fill the air with laughter and our kia kaha song!
Find a friend and sing along to Aotearoa's catchy KIA KAHA song. Featuring June Pitman-Hayes with children's entertainer Pio Terei, singing in English and Maori.
Kia kaha, kia kaha! Together standing strong.
We join our hands together, that's how we get along.
This is the perfect waiata to help talk to young children about this difficult period when we are all working together to break the spread of Covid-19 in Aotearoa. But at the moment we can only join hands in our own wh?nau bubbles!
Singer-songwriter June Pitman-Hayes composed this rousing waiata for Kiwi children from all backgrounds to encourage love and acceptance of diversity in race, culture and ability. Observed through a child's everyday viewpoint, it celebrates the strength in community, ably complemented by vibrant illustrations showing young children in a variety of situations.
From the creators of the popular Kia Ora: You Can Be a Kiwi Too and T?whirim?tea: A Song for Matariki, Kia Kaha features an accompanying CD of the heart-warming song, sung in English and M?ori. Perfect for ages 3 to 7 years and for the whole wh?nau to enjoy.
