Hui Kahu From ‘The Patea Maori Club’ Has Died – WATCH A GREAT ‘GOOD MORNING’ INTERVIEW WITH HER.
Hui made me cry on set of ‘Good Morning’. I had some very intense interviews about awful events, but the only time I cried on set was when Hui would not let me leave the group when they did a Karakia and Waiata for us. I cannot put into words what an amazing and spiritual experience it was to be included with them. ha, tears are rolling now. Sad news. It should be raining.
