After 3 weeks of travelling and visiting 11 iwi stations on the North Island in New Zealand we visited and had a guided tour of Maori Television. Thank you Dianne.
Maori Television is a New Zealand TV station broadcasting programmes that make a significant contribution to the revitalisation of the Maori language and culture. Funded by the New Zealand Government, the station started broadcasting on 28 March 2004 from a base in Newmarket.
In the reception area there is a copy of the Treaty of Waitangi – a treaty first signed on 6 February 1840 by representatives of the British Crown and various Maori chiefs from the North Island of New Zealand.
84 per cent of the general population believes that Māori Television should be a permanent part of New Zealand broadcasting.
Radio Waatea in Manukau City, Auckland in New Zealand was the last iwi station we visited…all done now. Went and had a look and a guided tour of Maori Television…awesome. Look forward to the Maori Sports Awards tomorrow night and then home sweet home Sunday morning. Can’t wait to see you Whanau (family).
It’s been an awesome trip and have travelled to a lot of places and I must say New Zealand is a beautiful country. Made a lot of friendships and maybe I’ll be back. Places we’ve been to on the North Island: Wellington, Otaki, Palmerston North,Turangi, Rotorua, West Hastings, Gisborne, Ruatoria, Whakatane, Paeroa, Ngaruawahia, Manukau City & finally Auckland. (orange highlights is where we travelled).
A big thank you to all the people who made this trip possible.
After visited 10 iwi stations on the North Island, New Zealand Pam & Safia visited the last radio station today. It has been an educational trip, learning how iwi station’s operate and meeting the beautiful staff who were very warming and treated us both like whanau (family). We both would like to thank all the iwi station’s in allowing us to come on their country and for their wonderful hospitality.
