In the year 2000, four children were welcomed into four families who shared their dreams, fears and hopes for their babies in WHĀNAU, a special documentary project that set out to get a glimpse of what it means to be Māori in the new millennium.
Now in WHĀNAU 2014, which screens at 9.30pm on Monday, October 13 on Māori Television, we meet these children again as they embark on the next stage in their lives.
A proposal for the strategic alignment of Māori Television has received the support of the organization’s Māori and Crown stakeholders.
