Whaikōrero - King Koroki

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:06 pm on 22 June 2014

Wiremu Parker hosts a panel discussion recorded in 1981 with panelists Tamati Kruger and Ruka Broughton.

The men analyse segments of the whaikorero (formal speech) delivered by Dr Pei te Hurinui Jones (1898 – 1976) at the poroporaki (farewell) to the fifth Māori king, Kingi Koroki.  

The discussion features archival material from the Centre for Māori studies and Research at the University of Waikato.
