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.

Love him or loathe him Winston Peters will be (well, soon to be) Prime Minister
John Tamihere: Love him or hate him, vote for him or against him, either way, Winston Peters will be Prime Minister - albeit as acting PM only.
Time for government to step up and sort out 'after-hours debacle' says Tamihere
John Tamihere: On Friday - the first day of winter - Westies will see billboards, adverts and information directing them to free medical care at Waitākere Hospital's Accident and Emergency department.
