Auckland a priority for reo efforts

The new chief executive of Te Taura Whiri would like to see more resources for Maori language regeneration going into Auckland.

Ngahiwi Apanui says a lot of the funds for community projects have gone to iwi around the regions.

Auckland, which is the largest centre of Maori population, seems to have missed out.

"So one of the big jobs for us this year was to look at that and see why it was happening and to factor it into future allocation of Ma Te Reo and CBLI and He Kainga Korero and ensure it is going in some way anyway to where the numbers are," Mr Apanui says.

While Te Taura Whiri is set for major changes because of a rewrite of the Te Reo Maori Language Act, until the law is changed it must get on with the business at hand.
