New Zealand scouts holding taiaha (spears) and wearing piupiu (flax skirts) prepare to do a haka at Arrowe Park, Birkenhead, England, at the third World Scout Jamboree in 1929. There is even a pātaka (storehouse) behind them in their encampment. New Zealand had also sent representatives to the first world jamboree held in London in 1918. Jamborees were a feature of the Scouting movement and were basically huge camps. Most were held at a national level – international jamborees were held less frequently.
