The struggle for the survival of te reo Māori is documented on the new Stories of Te Reo website, a project we are proud to have brought to life. The launch of this bilingual, interactive project coincides with the The UN General Assembly proclaiming 2022-2032 as the International Decade of Indigenous Languages to draw global attention to the critical situation of many indigenous languages.
“Te Reo Māori (Māori language) connects Māori New Zealanders to ancestors, culture and identity. It grounds all New Zealanders by giving us a sense of belonging to this place we call home. It guides us all as we prepare for the Aotearoa of tomorrow.” – Māori language commissioner Professor Rawinia Higgins.
