A collection of Tā Hekenukumai Pūhipi's interviews

Tā Hekenukumai Pūhipi was an avid supporter of Te Hiku Media. A regular kaikōrero on the radio, Uncle Hector could and would share his thoughts on a wide variety of kaupapa. A huge fan of technology, Uncle Hector encouraged Te Hiku Media to pursue innovation. When the Hōkūleʻa and Hikianalia arrived in Aotearoa in November 2014 on their Mālama Hōnua Voyage, Uncle Hector asked Te Hiku Media to 'bring the cameras' and that became the first ever livestream. 

This is a collection of all of the interviews on the radio and video series we have conducted over the years.
