Our logos

Kia kaha te reo Māori logo

Our logo features a contemporary interpretation of the heitiki – an icon that represents strength, leadership, nurture, and pride within our nation (Aotearoatanga). The tongue represents the elements of revitalisation: status, critical awareness, acquisition, use and corpus.

The colours used in the arero represent the rākau (cuisenaire rods) used in teaching the Ataarangi method, familiar now to decades of school children and adults.

Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori logo

Our name was given to us by our founding board chair, Sir Kingi Ihaka. Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, means the rope that binds the language. He said that the rope that binds us all together is our language. A rope that is woven by each tribe and each person to be strong. Our logo, a partially woven rope, was created by another founding board member, Dame Kāterina Te Heikōkō Mataira.
