Tatai Hono – looking for Wahine Maori for new TV series

2 min read

TATAI HONO a successful programme in its sixth series for Maori Television.

The programme is intended to support those looking for their connections and to inspire those watching at home. We are looking for a 20 to 35 year old Maori female who is ready to embark on a journey to discover her whakapapa.

Tatai Hono is about the journeys we take to find our turangawaewae; to understand where we came from, who we are, and where we belong. For each of us, knowing our heritage is central to identity. For those that have lost that connection – discovering or rediscovering can provide a pathway to follow, restoration of dignity, security and humanity.

The key element of this series is Maori rediscovering their Whakapapa and their marae.

Toitu te whenua ngaro ai te tangata.

This series will follow your journey as you rediscover your Maori heritage. With the help and support of a kaumtua led research team, we will share the journey back to your marae and your iwi, hapu and whanau. You will share your stories of how you have longed to find the “missing parts” of your life and inspire other Maori.

Those chosen to be part of the programme should be strongly motivated in their quest for their whakapapa. The Taitai Hono team of researchers will work with you to initiate the research and throughout the journey you will be guided by our production team with care and respect.
