TMN prize clarified

Thursday August 09, 2018 Written by Published in Culture

A story titled, “Puaikura takes top Maeva Nui prize” published in CINews on Tuesday, August 7 edition, said Rarotonga’s Vaka Puaikura had taken out the Terepai “Sunai” Matapo Trophy for the overall Te Maeva Nui cultural championships.

 

We regret any implication that other first place getters across the other categories were outperformed by Puaikura who claimed the Terepai “Sunai” Matapo Trophy for the overall Tangi Kaara (Drumming Competition), not the Te Maeva Nui cultural championship, for which there is no outright winner.

Space permitting, we will provide full details of the winners in tomorrow’s newspaper. CINews congratulates all participating teams and the judges for their expertise and dedication to the task.
