Te Mātāwai commends draft Māori Language Strategy

E mihi ana a Te Mātāwai ki te karauna mōna ka whakatere i te tauira o tāna Rautaki Reo Māori: Te Rautaki Maihi Karauna

Hei tā te Toihau o Te Mātāwai, a Waihoroi Shortland, “Me mātua pukumahi tātou kia tupu ake

he tirohanga kē, kia māori noa te tautokona o te reo, engari ko te mea nui katoa, ko te whakahou i te āhua o tā tātou mahi tahi ki te whakarauora i te reo Māori.

Hei tāna anō, “E tohu ana te whakarewatanga o te tauira o te rautaki reo Māori a te Karauna i te rā hei wānanga i tērā momo panonitanga, waihoki e whakamārama ana i ngā tūnga me ngā kawenga kei runga i te katoa mō te reo Māori. E mihi ana a Te Mātāwai ki te Karauna me te Minita Whanaketanga Māori, i a mātou ka mahi ngātahi ki te whakatutuki i tā mātou whakakitenga - kia mauri ora te reo.”

Ka arotahi te Maihi Karauna ki te motu, kia pai ake ai te ruruku i ngā mahi reo Māori a ngā tari Kāwanatanga me ngā hinonga e tutuki pai ai ngā putanga mō te reo.

Hei tā te Hoa-Toihau o Te Mātawai, a Mereana Selby, “Me mātua tautoko te Maihi Karauna i te whai a te Maihi Māori ki te whakahaumanu i te reo Māori kia hoki anō ai hei reo ūkaipō i ngā kāinga me ngā hapori Māori – kia ūkaipō anō te reo”

Hei tāna anō, “Ko te inenga tūturu o te pai o tā mātou whai i te ara hou o te haere kōtui tūturu ki te whakarauora i te reo, ko te kite, ko te rongo a te ngākau, a te taringa hoki o te iwi i ngā hua o ēnei mahi i ō rātou kāinga me ngā hapori."

“E tūturu ana te hiahia kia whakarauoratia te reo Māori, koirā i whakatūria ai Te Whare o Te Reo Mauri Ora, ka mutu kei te kaha ake te noho mātāmua mai o te whakatakoto tūāpapa pakari, kia kaha kē atu te tupu o te reo Māori."

Te Mātāwai commends the Crown on launching its draft Māori Language Strategy: Te Rautaki Maihi Karauna

“We have to work hard to change perceptions, create a new type of norm, and most of all, modify the way we work together to revitalise the Māori language,” says Te Mātāwai Hoa-Toihau, Waihoroi Shortland.

“The release of the Crown’s draft te reo Māori strategy for consultation today, signifies that kind of change, and importantly, giving clarity to the roles, responsibilities and obligations we all have for te reo Māori. Te Mātāwai commends the Crown and the Minster of Māori Development Hon Nanaia Mahuta, as we work together on our shared vision - kia mauri ora te reo,” he says.

The Maihi Karauna will have a national focus on better coordination between the multiple te reo Māori activities of Crown agencies and entities to ensure outcomes for the language are achieved.

“The Maihi Karauna must complement the Maihi Māori focus on restoring te reo Māori as a nurturing first language in Māori homes and communities – kia ūkaipō anō te reo,” says Te Mātāwai Hoa-Toihau Mereana Selby.

“The ultimate measure of our performance in this new era of genuine language revitalisation partnership will be the results that our people see, feel and hear in their homes and communities,” she says.

“There is an authentic will to revitalise te reo Māori that is why Te Whare o Te Reo Mauri Ora exists, and it is more important than ever to lay strong foundations so te reo Māori can grow from strength to strength.”
