"Tuia Matauranga" from what I work out is something to do with knowledge in the Maori language and the whole show focuses on "Takutai Moana" or coastal sea and "Te moana nui a Kiwa" or the Pacific Ocean with it being all about our "kai moana" or seafood.
Inside the trailer there were diagrams, illustrations and boards set up. Because we were so interested we were given a colouring book and pencils which we were pass onto my brother's children.
So as it's rich in Te Reo Maori langage, it's an upbeat show with catchy music and has a question and answer session afterwards.
The show runs for about 45 minutes, the trailer has been designed for touring purposes and there are 40 puppets in all.
The production was created by Sarah Burren who collaborated with Midge Perez. Because they recognized the significance of Matariki (meaning a celebration, spending time with family as well as agriculture and restarting the Maori calender) to many Kiwis they also collaborated with a Kaumatua (a Maori elder) Dr Haare Williams.
