Tautoko Te Wiki O Te Reo Maori

25 Hongonoi 1999

Ka kii mai te rangatira o Mauri Pacific a Tau Henare, ka korero Maori anake ona mema Paremata a te wiki ka heke mai nei, i te whakanui, honore hoki te wiki o te reo Maori.

"Ka kore Maori anake matou i roto i te whare miere, i roto i nga korero wero, me nga korero patai."

Ka ki hoki a Tau Henare ka korero Maori anake maua ko Tuku Morgan te mema mo Te Tai Hauauru "kahore maua i whakamarama a maua korero ki nga hunga kahore mohio i te reo. Etahi atu mema MPs Rana Waitai, Rev Ann Batten me Jack Elder ka korero Maori hoki i roto i ta ratau korero, ka tautokohia ratou te kaupapa o te wiki o te reo Maori.

"Ko tenei ta matou whakapono a Mauri Pacific ki te tautoko a tatou taonga te reo Maori, tetahi o nga reo tuturu o tenei whenua i roto i a matou tautoko ka tino mihi atu matou ki nga hunga pera ki a Hana Te Hamara ma nana ratou i tino wero atu ki te kawantanga i nga tau pahure ake nei, i te whakahonore te kawanatanga ko te reo Maori tetahi o nga reo tuturu o Aotearoa.

"Ka mea hoki ia, ka tuhi korero hoki a matou whakaro i roto i te reo Maori anake mo a matou whakapaho atu ki te motu, kahore matou i whakamarama a matou whakapaho.

"E maha o nga mahi tautoko e pa ana ki te kaupapa, toku tumanako a pa ana ki nga tangata katoa o Aotearoa i whakamahia i roto i te kaupapa, ko tenei te wiki whakamutunga o te taumano, no reira i roto i tera kaupapa e tini nga hua mo te reo Maori me nga tikanga."

Ka ki ia, ka titiro whakamua ia ki te whare paremata mo nga korero wero e pa ana ki te kaupapa nei a te wiki ka heke mai nei.
