Dr Ranginui Walker tangihanga to be livestreamed on Māori Television

The tangihanga for the late Dr Ranginui Walker will be livestreamed on www.maoritelevison.com at 10.45am today and tomorrow and also live broadcast on Māori Television on Friday.

Dr Walker will be escorted on to Orakei Marae at 11am today and the coverage will continue until Friday.

Māori Television Chief Executive Paora Maxwell says the decision to broadcast the tangi was made in conjunction with the Walker whānau and Orakei Marae.

“The broadcast is to honour a man who has contributed much to the Māori renaissance of te reo Māori and the understanding of Māori issues by wider Aotearoa New Zealand,” says Mr Maxwell.

“Making the last rites of a great man available to New Zealanders is important to Māori Television’s central kaupapa of valuing and embracing te reo Māori me ngā tikanga.”
