Te Ao with MOANA – Dr Te Huirangi Waikerepuru


Dr Te Huirangi Waikerepuru was a legend and a man synonymous with Taranaki, with Parihaka.

He died last week.

Reporter Kereama Wright was the only reporter at the Tangihanga – he explores the pain facing whanau, hapu, Iwi burying a treasured leader during lockdown.

Te Ao with MOANA screens on Māori TV 8pm Mondays


  1. Hard times. But great reporting. Cheers Moana & the crew.
    E nui te mihi ana ki te rangatira kua pahure.

  2. Pretty heart rending video,… and a reminder to how this thing has affected so many community’s and family’s across the land. Lets keep those in these circumstances in our thoughts whenever we are tempted to become personally frustrated over minor inconveniences.

  3. A difficult time that cannot be postponed or come again. The memory in video will help those who selflessly stayed away.

    Ko taku reo taku ohooho, ko taku reo taku mapihi mauria
    Kua hinga te totara i te wao nui a Tane
