Te Puni Kōkiri and the Māori language commission Te Taura Whiri are working together on a reo for rangatahi strategy, including regional workshops and a national youth reo summit.

TPK chief executive Michelle Hippolite says it’s part of the crown’s Maihi Karauna Māori language strategy, and is likely to involve extensive use of social media.

A memorandum signed yesterday with Te Māngai Pāho means the Māori broadcast funding agency will contribute with snap reo initiatives.

"So you know how do we make it quick and snazzy how can rangatahi see te reo is of today's time, not just of past time or just on the marae, so looking forward to the work Te Māngai Pāho will invest in to enable us to realise the vision of Kia māhorahora te reo - Māori language that is seen and heard, everywhere, every way, spoken by everyone, every day," Ms Hippolite says.

ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
