Revitalisation of te Reo Māori is at the heart of what we do here at Te Taura Whiri I te Reo Māori. Our mission is to give effect to the status of te Reo Māori as an official language, to promote te Reo Māori as an ordinary means of communication and as a living language, and to lead the coordination of the implementation of Te Maihi Karauna (Crown Māori Language Strategy).   

We aim to create an environment where the Public Sector, private sector, and wider community organisations are enabled to help revitalise te Reo Māori.  We want all New Zealanders to value the Māori language as part of our national identity and as a living language for everyone to enjoy and celebrate – everywhere, every way, everyone, and every day. 

We are looking for people with the strategic drive and passion for te Reo Māori to come to join us in leading the implementation of Te Maihi Karauna (Crown Māori Language Strategy).
