Te Taura Whiri - Māori Language Commission

Te Taura Whiri - Māori Language Commission logo

There are many things that define New Zealanders and connect us to our home: and te reo Māori is one of them. Thanks to the determination of some incredible people, the revitalisation of te reo is a movement that continues to this day, and we proudly support it.

Our mahi spans multiple teams and projects across Te Taura Whiri, enabling digital to expand their reach across the motu and the globe to support their goal of 1 million te reo speakers by 2040.

Reo Māori is more than a website, it’s a movement building digital space which supports the acts as a clearing house for news, resources, and inspiration for learning te reo Māori, as well as a place to share stories and take actions to develop learning and grow the movement. Over consecutive campaigns users have uploaded tens of thousands of stories which are curated on personal and organisation profiles to be shared with the world in a display of the strength of the movement.

Te Wā Tuku Māori, the Māori Language Moment has become the pinnacle of Te Wiki o te reo Māori, Māori Language week. Our integrated social media, web development, and digital engagement strategy has supported over 1 million New Zealanders to participate.

Te Pae Mahere is a desktop app we’ve developed in order to meet the growing demand for language planning. This unique project aims to scale the ability of the small Language Planning Team at Te Taura Whiri to be able to support a growing number of organisations requiring their services and is currently in use by government departments.

We designed and developed Te Taura Whiri’s bilingual website, showcasing their mahi to the world, telling their story, and enabling access to their core services.

Stories of te Reo is a first of its kind, immersive timeline-based website that documents the pivotal moments in the revitalisation of the Māori language. The timeline only tells part of the story; so the site empowers whānau to collect the stories of their own whānau, hapū, iwi, communities, and organisations so these kōrero can live in perpetuity.

Our team confidently partners with this Te Tiriti-based organisation and comfortably works in a kaupapa Māori environment. Te reo is a taonga and we are proud to support its continued revitalisation.

Kia kaha te reo Māori!
Kia kaha Aotearoa!
