Few Dalmatian women arrived until the 1920s, and many earlier Dalmatian gum diggers married and had children with Māori women. Tarara Day serves as a celebration for those who have Dalmatian and Māori descent. Dalmatian music, kapa haka (Māori performing arts) and a hāngī (food cooked in an earth oven) are all on the agenda.
