Hinewehi Mohi

Producer, Performer [Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāi Tuhoe]

The multitalented Hinewehi Mohi, MNZM, is arguably best known for a single moment from her musical career — singing the national anthem in te reo at a 1999 rugby game. After getting a Bachelor of Arts at Waikato University in 1985, Mohi jumped into reporting for primetime Māori slot Koha. In 2004 she set up Raukatauri Productions, and launched long-running waiata programme Moteatea. It was nominated for two screen awards. Her TV work also includes producing Marae DIY and Matariki Awards coverage, and directing a documentary on Merata Mita. In 2016 Women in Film and Televison named her Te Reo Māori Champion.

...my rendition in 1999 wasn't so unique, but it was a first for rugby. I can't really explain the controversy because I don't really fully understand it . . . It baffled me and it still baffles me a little really. When I see the All Blacks singing it proud and Graham Henry singing it proud, it makes it all worthwhile. Hinewehi Mohi recalls singing the national anthem in te reo, The Dominion Post, 19 September 2011
