Reo strategy will require crown effort

Maori Development Minister Nanaia Mahuta is keen for the crown to hold up its end in revitalising te reo Maori.

The new Government has inherited the Maori Party's Te Matawai reform, which changed the scope of the Maori Language Commission and created a new body to lead a Maori response to language revitalisation.

Ms Mahuta says at the moment there is no thought of further changes to the Maori Language Act.

"The focus will be on the crown and having a reo revitalisation strategy that we can work in partnership with Te Matawai to achieve. The key agencies that will be critical to help deliver that will be Te Taura Whiri, Te Mangai Paho and Maori TV. Obviously Maori radio is caught up in that aspiration as well," she says.

The Politics of Kindness
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: There's been a bit of debate online right now about what it means to have 'New Zealand values'. NZ First have brought the issue up by wanting a 'Values Test' for migrants and John Tamihere has written some thoughts in his latest NZ Herald column
Where's the business backbone?
John Tamihere: It beggars belief that business confidence is down, and to me this reflects major problems based on capacity and capability of our business leaders.
We are not mates with Australia
John Tamihere: Let's get the conclusion of this opinion piece out of the way, up front, and quickly. It's a myth that we are mates.
