Māori Language Commission Welcomes Stuff Announcement

Commission welcomes Stuff announcement

The Māori Language Commission has welcomed the unprecedented, new direction taken by the editorial team at Stuff NZ.

“During lockdown we worked with the team at Stuff and soon stories in English and Māori became a regular feature: the first time in more than a century that a major newspaper published in the first language of our country,” said Professor Rawinia Higgins, Māori Language Commissioner.

“Normalising te reo across the most widely read media outlet in Aotearoa was a huge step that we were proud to help make happen this year with the help of New Zealand’s top translators as well as Stuff’s editorial team.”

“Today Stuff has taken this whakaaro a step further and turned a spotlight on their own mahi over the past 160-years: this marks a new, courageous direction for one of our nation’s oldest media outlets. And it is a direction we are excited about.”
