Tangihanga COVID-19

Te tai rā, te tai rā, te tai rā e pari ana ki hea?

E pari ana ki tawhiti nui, ki tawhiti roa

E pari ana ki a rātou mā kua ngaro i te ao, kua riro ki te pō

Aue te mamae e haehae ake nei…

Ka huri ki te hunga ora, tēna tātou katoa,

As we have seen in Aotearoa and across the world, COVID-19 can be spread more easily and quickly when groups of people gather together. Tangihanga and funerals create a particular risk because of the amount of physical connection when people are grieving. With the release of the Tangihanga guidelines from the Ministry of Health, we have adapted our Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei guidance as follows. 

The below tangihanga tikanga has been established for Ōrākei Marae:

  • At Alert Level 4, marae will be closed.
  • At Alert Level 3, Ōrākei Marae can only open for tangihanga, weddings or civil unions. These gathering are limited to 10 people only.
  • At Alert Level 2, marae may open for tangihanga but gatherings are restricted to 50 people indoors, and 100 people outdoors.

We have appointed kaiwhakarite who are available to talk to, provide
