Rereātea - Midday News Bytes 17 March

By Kimiora Kaire-Melbourne, Wikitōria Day

Rereātea brings you the latest news live from the Māori Television newsroom. Today Wikitoria Day and Kimiora Kaire-Melbourne are joined by a special guest from Te Kura Kaupapa Māori a rohe o Mangere.

Discussed on today’s bulletin;

  • A petition calling for an end to Rodeo is being presented to Green MP Mojo Mathers at Parliament today. However, long-time supporters and people involved in the sport deny claims of animal cruelty and say people are being misinformed.
  • We've got an exclusive sneak peek at Makeda Wirangi's amazing story tonight on Te Kaea . From the aisle of a Melbourne pharmacy to suddenly appearing on the catwalk in New York.
  • Our team is also joined by guest presenter Wakawiti Paratene of Te Kura Kaupapa a rohe o Mangere who paid a visit to Māori Television today with his kura. He talks about his future aspirations and what he and his fellow students thought of their day spent at Māori Television.

For all the details on tonight's stories tune in to Te Kāea on Māori Television at 5:30 with subtitles.
