Fresh leadership for the
Māori Television Service board

The co-chairs of Te Mātāwai Mereana Selby and Waihoroi Shortland today announce a fresh leadership team for the board of the Māori Television Service.
Jamie Tuuta (Ngāti Mutunga, Taranaki, Ngāti Maru, Te Ātiawa, Ngāti Tama) is the new chair of the Māori Television Service Board and Peter-Lucas Jones (Te Aupouri, Ngāi Takato, Ngāti Kahu) is the new deputy chair of the board.

“I’d like to thank the responsible Ministers for working with us on these two critical appointments, and we look forward to continuing our strong relationship as we tackle and accelerate te reo Māori revitalisation together,” says Te Mātāwai Hoa Toihau Waihoroi Shortland.

“This is a tangible example of the genuine partnership between Māori and the Crown; in this case Te Mātāwai and the Ministers in the active implementation of the restoration and revitalisation of our taonga te reo Māori.”

The Māori Television Service (Te Aratuku Whakaata Irirangi Māori) Act 2003 outlines the joint role of the responsible Ministers and the co-chairs of Te Mātāwai to act jointly to appoint the chairperson and the deputy chairperson of the board.

“It’s about appointing the right people to the right roles based on their experience and credibility and from Te Mātāwai’s perspective Jamie and Peter-Lucas have the right kind of complementarity and energy required for successful te reo Māori revitalisation leadership,” says Te Mātāwai co-chair Mereana Selby.

“They are both very well grounded in te reo Māori and tikanga, and they both share the same passion and vision to restore te reo Māori as a nurturing first language within homes and communities. These are critical appointments that will lead the revitalisation efforts across the service,” she says.
