Maori immersion schools want Maori language and history to be compulsory throughout all schools.

Nga Kura a Iwi held its annual hui in Rotorua over the weekend

Chairperson Pem Bird says the 28 schools are scattered around the country, so the regular get togethers are great for morale and wairua.

He says Nga Kura and its kaumatua support group, Te Kahui Reo Taketake, are concerned at the lack of cultural equity in the education system.

Te reo Maori is still not a core subject in the New Zealand curriculum, and it needs to have the same status as English.

"In terms of Maori history, history is part and parcel of the architecture of our identity as Maori New Zealanders and Pakeha New Zealanders. We lack integrity until such time as that is delivered and implemented alongside te reo Maori," Mr Bird says.

Nga Kura wants the resources needed to double the numebr of kura reo Maori and kura a iwi over the next five years.
