Kaiora Tipene MC/Entertainer Profile


Pathway Pioneer, Storyteller & Cultural Guide

Captivating speaker and MC, Kaiora Tipene is a savvy business-owner and reality TV star. As seen on TV, Kaiora (alongside husband Francis) fronts NZ docu-series The Casketeers where her warm and confident demeanour guides viewers through tales of business, loss — while offering insight into Māoritanga and the Māori-Pasifka grieving processes. Calling upon indigenous tradition of storytelling, and guided by her own tupuna, as a speaker, Kaiora’s appraoch is testament to what she holds dear. A powerful proprietor and advocate, and as kind and familiar as she is persuasive, Kaiora is an astute speaker, MC and practitioner of Māoritanga. An obvious choice.
