Tangata Rau, Reo Kotahi2022-12-22T15:23:15+13:00

Over the years, our whānau have expressed their desire to improve their culture and language capability.  Whether it be basic pronunciation, complex whaikōrero or being able to sing the same waiata tautoko, there is a common desire for improvement in our capability.

This year, with great pride, under the expert leadership of Trustees Jeremy MacLeod and Janis de Thierry, we were able to launch our Culture and Language Strategy – Tangata Rau, Reo Kotahi.  After a process which included research by Victoria University and consultation with our members, we came together at the beginning of Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori in September at Ūkaipō to celebrate the launch with Te Reo Māori advocates and media superstars Stacey and Scotty Morrison offering some helpful insights to assist our learning.
