The chair of the Maori Party's Tamaki Makaurau branch says there is new spark in the party as it looks for ways to stay relevant outside parliament.

The rohe held a hui yesterday at Ruapotaka Marae in Glen Innes to scope the issues it needs to address.

Tasha Hohaia says it is running basic political education on things like how to make submissions and the importance of building up the Maori electoral roll.

She says it's a voice that is needed.

"That's become really clear. Our people are still hungry to have Maori values, not just like a Maori idea on top of other Pakeha things. We want our values embedded in the nation, not just for Maori but for all New Zealanders," Ms Hohaia says.

The Maori Party can still work on analysing policy and being though leaders.
