Louisa Tipene Opetaia
Louisa Tipene Opetaia (Te Rarawa, Hāmoa, Whītī) is a kaihononga, for Glorious Publicity. She is a seasonal tour guide with Haka Tours, serving as a connector between international guests and Aotearoa, providing cultural experiences and sharing te reo Māori, tikanga and pūrākau (stories) with manuhiri from all over the world.
On Saturday, South African fans sang loudly over the top of the All Blacks' haka in the opening round of the Rugby World Cup. Opposing sides and crowds can do what they want, writes Louisa Tipene Opetaia, but should heed the lessons of the past.
