Kua whakahokia a Maureen Waaka ki Tamatekapua

Kua hoki a Maureen Waaka ki tōna tipuna whare, ki te uma o Tamatekapua. I hinga ia i te ata nei ki te hohipera o Rotorua whai muri i te mate ikura roro i pā ki a ia i te tekau ma ono o tenei marama. I te ahiahi nei pohirihia e Te Arawa, Ngāti Whakaue i tētahi o ratou, he kaikaunihera, kaiwaha korero, he kuini no Aotearoa hoki, ka noho koia te tuatahi o ngā wahine Māori ki te mau i tēra taitara.
