“I āta whakaaro matou I ngā tāngata rongonui rawa he huarahi whakapūioio te haere. He taumata whakahirahira ki te tautoko I nga iwi me nga hunga noho nei I nga taone ki te whakanui i o tātou nei reo” te kī o te hēmana tuarua o NUMA Amorangi Tureiti Moxon.

He kai whakapaoho rongonui, he mangai kaha a Mr Jackson ki te hapai I te reo, a, koia ano te hemana matua o te National Urban Māori Authority.

“Nāku nei te miharo ki te tu hei mangai mō nga whanau nā te mea nui rawa te hunga kore nei te reo Māori I nga taone” te kī a Willie Jackson, he akonga reo rua ano I te reo Maori.

Nā ngā mangai 13 hei whakahaere I Te Mātāwai – 7 nā ngā iwi e whiriwhiri, 4 nā Te Reo Tukutuku o te huinga maha o te reo Māori, 2 nā te Minita Māori. Ko ngā tira a iwi e whitu ara: Te Taitokerau, Tainui, Mātaatua, Te Arawa, Te Tai Rawhiti, Te Tai Hau-ā-uru, Te Waipounamu. Ko ngā tira o Te Reo Tukutuku ara: Matauranga, Kai-whakapaoho, Hapori me ngā Mātāwaka.

The new organisation established under Te Ture mō te Reo Māori 2016 (The Māori Language Act 2016) – is to lead the revitalisation of te reo Māori on behalf of iwi and Māori.

“We reviewed a number of highly qualified candidates during the selection process which was robust. It is an important role supporting iwi and Māori in urban centres in the revitalisation of our language” says Deputy Chair of NUMA Lady Tureiti Moxon.

Highly regarded broadcaster, Mr Jackson is a strong advocate of te reo and currently the Chair of the National Urban Māori Authority.

“I look forward to being able to represent and advocate for whānau as there are many that are not able to speak Māori in urban centres” says Willie Jackson, a second language learner of Māori.

Te Mātāwai will be governed by 13 members – seven to be appointed by iwi clusters, four by te reo tukutuku clusters of te reo Māori stakeholder organisations, and two by the Minister for Māori Development.
