tumuaki Anaru Tamihana
Māoridom is mourning the loss of tumuaki and kingmaker Anaru Tamihana of Ngāti Hauā, who died surrounded by whānau at Waikato Hospital on Saturday, aged 69.
Ngāti Hauā and the Kīngitanga have since named the 10th kingmaker of the Kīngitanga movement, on the eve of Tamihana's tangi. Anaru's successor will be his son, Hone.
Tamihana will be laid to rest this afternoon.
