Maori Television has this afternoon published the haka performance by Te Iti Kahurangi as part of its online coverage of Te Matatini 2015.

Earlier today, Maori Television staff discussed the haka at a staff hui resulting in a collective decision to upload the haka as part of Te Iti Kahurangis final online package.

[quote_box_center]Weve taken on board the feedback from staff and our audience and the message was clear that the haka should be available for viewing and we have done just that, says Maori Television Chief Executive Paora Maxwell.[/quote_box_center]

We have been proud and humbled to be associated with Te Matatini this year and, particularly, being able to bring the Festival to one million viewers.”

We remain committed to bringing kapahaka to the widest possible audience, says Mr Maxwell.

Maori Television came under scrutiny over the weekend after they edited out Te Iti Kahurangi’s haka which was critical of Maori TV and their choice of broadcasts (i.e. investigating the Kohanga Reo Trust)
