Te Reo Māori: he ara hou | Māori Language: a new course

E kī ana Te Taura Whiri i Te Reo Māori nā te whakaputanga a te Rautaki Reo Māori a te Karauna i te rā nei e te Minita Nanaia Mahuta kua whakahouhia katoatia te huarahi mā te reo Māori, mā Te Taura Whiri anō hoki.

Ā-motu nei, mā te Taura Whiri e ārahi te whakaritenga o ngā pūtahi e whakatinana ana i te rautaki e kīia nei ko te Maihi Karauna.

E ai ki a Ngahiwi Apanui, te tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri ko te wā tuatahi tēnei kua tūhonohono ai te Karauna me te Iwi Māori i runga i tētahi mahi tahi, he mea haere tonu, ki te whakatutuki i ngā whāinga tauwhāiti. He mea tautoko te Maihi Karauna i te rautaki e ārahitia ana e te pūtahi whakarauora reo Māori, Te Mātāwai, ko te ingoa o taua rautaki ko te Maihi Māori.

Mā Te Mātāwai te whakaritenga o ngā mahi ā-rohe a ngā iwi, a ngā hapū me ētahi atu whakahaere Māori, e whakahaere.

“Kua whakaritea e te Maihi Karauna e toru ngā whāinga māia hei whakatutuki i mua i te tau 2040 – kia 85 ōrau o ngā tāngata o Aotearoa e whakaae ana he mana tō te reo Māori, ka mutu, he mea nui ki te tuakiri o Aotearoa; kia kotahi miriona a Ngāi Aotearoa e mōhio ana ki te kōrero Māori mō ngā āhuatanga māmā, waihoki, kia 150,000 ngā tāngata Māori tekau mā rima te pakeke neke atu he ōrite te nui o te kōrero Māori ki te nui o tā rātou kōrero Ingarihi.

“Ka whakatairangatia te whakamaheretanga reo puta noa i te rāngai kāwanatanga, otirā ki Aotearoa whānui hei ara whai tikanga ki te whakatutukinga o ēnei whāinga.

“He āhuatanga ārahi hou puta noa i te kāwanatanga tā mātou mahi whakatinana mō Te Taura Whiri. Ehara i te mea ko ngā tari kāwanatanga anake e hiahia ana kia whai wāhi mai ki ngā mahi whakarauora, engari he hīkaka anō hoki ngā whakahaere hapori me ngā whakahaere tūmataiti kia whai wāhi mai. Kei konei mātou hei āwhina, kia māmā ake ngā mahi, kia mahea ake hoki i ngā āwangawanga o ngā whakahaere auraki ki ngā mahi i te taha o te ao Māori.

Maihi Māori (Iwi and Māori Strategy)


The Māori Language Commission says the Crown Māori Language Strategy issued today by Māori Development Minister Nanaia Mahuta sets out a completely new course for te reo Māori and the Commission.

At the national level, the Commission will lead coordination of the agencies implementing the strategy, known as the Maihi Karauna.

Commission Chief Executive Ngahiwi Apanui says this is the first time the Crown and Māori have joined together in a national, on-going, working partnership to achieve specific goals. The strategy, the Maihi Karauna complements the strategy led by the Māori revitalisation agency Te Mātāwai, known as the Maihi Māori.

Te Mātāwai will lead coordination of local efforts by iwi, hapū and other Māori organisations.

“The Maihi Karauna sets out three audacious goals to achieve by 2040 – 85 per cent of New Zealanders valuing te reo Māori as a key part of national identity; a million New Zealanders being able to talk in te reo about at least basic things and 150,000 Māori aged 15 and over using Māori as much as English.

“The Commission will be promoting language planning throughout the public service and wider New Zealand as a practical way of reaching these goals.

“Our implementation role represents a new leadership function across government for the Commission. Not only government agencies but private and community organisations are eager and willing to take part in revitalisation. We’re here to help, to make it easy and to take away any fears mainstream organisations have about working with the Māori world.
