Te Kāea is saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Mākere Jordan-Kaa, renowned teacher and reo exponent of Te Whānau o Hunaara and Ruawaipu descent, at the age of 73.

Mākere was head of Māori Television's subtitling department from 2004-2007 and later became the specialist subtitler for shows like Te Tēpu and Waka Huia.

She is currently lying in state at Ohinewaiapu Marae ahead of her burial on Wednesday.

Māori Television expresses our condolences to the whānau, and to the whole of Te Tairāwhiti.
