The Māori Party wants to increase by tenfold the grant for Te Matatini, the Māori performing arts competition.

Waiāriki candidate Rawiri Waititi, a veteran performer, says kapahaka is not just a performing art but a repository of mātauranga Māori, reo, whakapapa, and history.

It also supports physical health and mental health, teaches teamwork and problem-solving skills, and builds confidence.

The proposal to boost funding from $1.9 million to $19 million a year is based on what ballet and classical music get compared with the size of their audience.

The party’s toi Māori policy also includes a new Māori arts body that receives equal funding to Creative New Zealand and a $10 million research fund to produce evidence of how toi Māori contributes to oranga Māori.

OPINION: Kelvin Davis has another terrible day at the office
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: I am honestly not sure who is advising Minister Kelvin Davis, but his surprising decision this week to attack People Against Prisons Aotearoa (PAPA) and refer their pamphlets calling on prison reform to the Police for supposedly inciting the prison riot at Waikeria prison is such a desperately wrong footed move one is left wondering what on earth he thinks he's doing.
