Ngāi Te Rangi using technology to support uri in lockdown

By Te Ao - Māori News

Once restrictions on tangihanga ease, Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Te Rangi in Tauranga is offering its tribal members the services of kaumātua and online technology to help whānau manage tangi at home. 

This will include explaining customs around the placement and care of the dead and elders providing formal speeches to visitors and prayer, via apps like Skype and Zoom or by videocall.
