Tui & Tama present – Legends Unleashed Dinosaur Extravaganza

Inspired by Dinosaur Darren’s Tupuna (ancestors) Māori Legends of the mighty Taniwha and ferocious Ngarara recited to him by his Grandmother, Dinosaur Darren & Rista have put together an awesome program which takes Tamariki (children) on an educational and entertaining journey back in time not only to the time of the Dinosaurs but also to the days when Darren’s Tupuna’s (ancestors) encountered the mighty Taniwha and ferocious god like creeping Ngarara. Darren has a passion for reciting ancient Pūrākau-Māori-Legends and Stories and sharing the Mātauranga Māori (Maori knowledge) within them. Rista is Aotearoa’s official Raptor Trainer, and she is currently busy training two Velociraptors for human interaction!
