Maori television pathfinder will be remembered
10 August 2016

One of the exemplars of Maori broadcasting, Puhi Rangiaho of Ngai Tuhoe, has died in Tauranga Hospital after a long illness.

As one of the first directors at Waka Huia, she proved adept at getting kuia and kaumatua to open up and share their knowledge.

She brought ballast to Aotearoa Television Network, the first attempt to create a Maori television channel, and her behaviour during the company’s collapse meant she was one of the few to emerge with any credit from the debacle.

She continued making programmes with her own production company, as well as working on productions like The Merchant of Venice,

Her tangi will be at Tauarau Marae in Ruatoki.
