HIGHLAND GAMES

Chieftains

The role of Chieftain dates back to when Scottish “clans” all had a “chieftain” as the leader of their family. The highland games allowed the “chieftain” to find out who were the strongest and fastest of his group who he would have in future battles.

At the Hororata Highland Games Chieftain is an honorary position. When considering who to invite to be our Chieftain we look for someone who is a leader and someone who represents the values of our community.
