This extract from a 2010 episode of the Māori-language TV series Waka huia shows Katerina Waiari, of the Pahipoto hapū of Ngāti Awa, learning the waiata 'Taku aroha' with her daughter and other relatives. Waiari was then one of the last of her people to know the traditional waiata of her own tribal area, around Te Teko in the Bay of Plenty. She encouraged others to learn these waiata, and they became well known and were frequently sung at important occasions such as graduation ceremonies.
