Te Puni Kōkiri and the Māori language commission Te Taura Whiri are working together on a reo for rangatahi strategy, including regional workshops and a national youth reo summit.

TPK chief executive Michelle Hippolite says it’s part of the crown’s Maihi Karauna Māori language strategy, and is likely to involve extensive use of social media.

A memorandum signed yesterday with Te Māngai Pāho means the Māori broadcast funding agency will contribute with snap reo initiatives.

"So you know how do we make it quick and snazzy how can rangatahi see te reo is of today's time, not just of past time or just on the marae, so looking forward to the work Te Māngai Pāho will invest in to enable us to realise the vision of Kia māhorahora te reo - Māori language that is seen and heard, everywhere, every way, spoken by everyone, every day," Ms Hippolite says.

Does size matter? The Cross-Cultural Politics of the Penis.
Dr Rawiri Taonui: Those who apply a cultural double standard to condemn indigenous art as obscene while ignorant of their own tradition are the sorts of people who refer to sexual intercourse as having a naughty.
It's okay to kōrero, it's okay to be Māori
Dr Rawiri Taonui: In Tauranga last week there was a ‘It’s okay to be White’ leaflet drop. Complaints also came to light against netball teams from Māori schools for speaking te reo on court.
