The Telegraph reports:
Topless female Maori dancers will cover up when they greet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at the start of their tour, according to a Maori expert.
Tredegar Hall, a member of the London-based Maori club Ngati Ranana, said male dancers wearing grass skirts had also been instructed to add underwear for the ceremonial welcome in Wellington on Monday. . .
It is possible Hall knows more about Maori protocol than I do but I can’t recall ever seeing topless Maori dancers.
