Te Purapura 246

He Mihi

Tēnei te whakairi ake i ngā parekawakawa o ngā mate huhua o te wā. 
E tangi mōteatea ana ki a rātou kua karangahia e te ao wairua kia rūpeke atu ki tua o te pae o maumahara. 
Tērā rātou kua riro ki tērā kāpunipunitanga, haere, haere e oki atu. 
Ko te whakatau noa nei, ko rātou te hunga mate ki a rātou.
Ko tātou ngā kanohi ora ki a tātou. 
Nō reira, tēnā anō tātou katoa.

Māori Television - Turning Up the Haka

Māori Television are bringing kapa haka to your livings rooms with new shows “The Ring Inz” and “Haka Life”, premiering March 22nd and 23rd.

Te Matatini may be done and dusted, but Māori Television are making sure you continue to get your haka fix in the fresh new wave of shows lined up for this year.
“Haka Life” gets down to the real nitty gritty of kapa haka, providing the best yet behind-the-scenes look at the trials, tribulations and triumphs of Ngā Tūmanako kapa haka as they journey to Te Matatini 2017. The series follows new parents, talented musicians, practiced leaders, kapa haka couples and returners to the group who all hang their hopes on making the final cut and walking away with the national title. Viewers will see whether all their commitment and sacrifice will be worth it.
“The Ring Inz” promises to deliver a comedy-drama approach to the highs and lows of choosing the haka life. There are bold characters and a collision of relationships, making for a crazy crew with a burning passion for kapa haka. It’s all laughs and set on a marae, celebrating the individual quirks that make us who we are and the achievements that can be gained when we all band together. These actors are no strangers to Aotearoa screens, with Hori Ahipene playing Teepz and Whāea Mavis, Katie Wolfe as Nanny Fanny and Roimata Fox as Koakoa.
The season premieres screened last week and will be a regular feature on Māori Television - “Haka Life” Wednesdays 9:00pm and “The Ring Inz” on Thursdays at 9:00pm

Te Kahu o te Amorangi - Te Matatini Kapa Haka 2017

Te Kahu o te Amorangi – Te Matatini 2017, hosted by Ngāti Kahungunu drew thousands who came to witness 47 teams compete over four days of competition.
Te Matatini Chair Selwyn Parata paid a special tribute to Ngāti Kahungunu for organising an event of this calibre that well exceeded expectations. 
Kahungunu chairman Ngahiwi Tomoana said that the iwi had put around $2.5 million into the event in order to cater for 1,880 performers for a week with daily crowds upwards of 10,000 coming through the gates. 
Te Māngai Pāho proudly sponsored the “live” radio and television broadcasts with local iwi broadcaster Radio Kahungunu providing live radio coverage and Hakarongo Mai broadcasting live English language translations of each performance. Māori Television provided television broadcasts and online streams of each performance over four days. The station has reported significantly increased numbers taking the online streams of the competition.
Being currently co-located with Te Matatini office staff, TMP was able to see first-hand some of the considerable behind the scenes effort that went into the organisation of the festival.
