He Mihi Aroha - Maori Queen Special
E hotuhotu ana te tangi a te ngakau ki to wehenga atu i te aoturoa e Te Arikinui, e mahue pani nei matou, e takahi atu nei koe i te ara e kore he hokinga mai, i te po kerekere o mate.
Takoto mai koe i te waka o te aroha, matou te mokemoke nei, te roimata ki nga kamo, te wero ki te manawa e. Haere atu te taonga a Tainui, te taonga a te motu, te taonga a te Moana Nui A Kiwa, te taonga a te ao.

It is an honour for TVNZ, as New Zealand's television public broadcaster, to be given the task of hosting the broadcasting arrangements for the tangi of Te Ariki Nui Dame Te Atairangikaahu.
Our goal is to convey to the public of New Zealand the emotion and significance of the farewell to this gentle leader, in a way that is sincerely respectful and as dignified as Dame Te Atairangikaahu herself.
We are proud to take a part in bringing this important occasion into the homes of New Zealanders.
