More than two thousand people are expected to arrive in the small settlement of Pukepoto for the final farewell to master navigator and carver Sir Hekenukumai Busby. He died on Saturday at the age of 86 and his karakia whatamutunga will take place later this morning at his marae in Pukepoto just outside of Kaitaia. Our reporter Mani Dunlop is there.
