Te Hiku Media will soon celebrate 25 years of Māori Language Broadcasting. To mark and celebrate the occasion an event will be held in Ahipara at Roma Marae. Your attendance at Roma Marae, 11.00am Friday 11 December will be very much appreciated.
Te Hiku Media is a charitable media organisation, collectively belonging with the Far North iwi of Ngāti Kuri, Te Aupouri, Ngai Takoto, Te Rārawa and Ngāti Kahu.
The station is an iwi communications hub for iwi radio, online TV and regional media content distribution. Māori language revitalisation is a core focus of Te Hiku Media, as is archiving and regional media content production.
The kaupapa of Te Hiku Media is best articulated through the vision and mission of the organization which was confirmed by a hui of kaumātua and kuia (elders), and other native speakers of Te Reo Māori at Mahimaru Marae on Thursday 30 May 2013.
