He Kawenata Whakaaetanga (MOU) kua waitohua e Whakaata Māori me Taiwan Indigenous Television i te rā nei kia āhei ai te whakawhitiwhiti rauemi, mahi anō hoki ki waenganui i ngā pou pāho iwi taketake e rua. 

“We are pleased to announce this strategic cooperation with Taiwan Indigenous Television that supports our shared goals of promoting indigenous language and culture, extending our audience reach and engagement and creating high-quality content,” te kōrero a Shane Taurima, Tāhuhu Rangapū o Whakaata Māori.

“Our job is to tell great Māori stories that elevate Māori voices and perspectives. By doing this we promote te reo Māori and tikanga Māori and our unique world indigenous view.”

“We intend to share news and entertainment content with each other, set up staff exchanges and look to co-design, co-produce and co-invest in content production.”

 “The MOU strengthens the bond between indigenous peoples and supports our mission to connect people to te ao Māori and te ao Māori to the world,” te kī a Taurima.  

I whakarewaina a Taiwan Indigenous Television i te tau 2005, ā ka whakapāho kōrero i roto i ngā reo iwi taketake 14. Ko te tuatahi ia o ngā ratonga whakaata iwi taketake i Āhia. 

Kei te tira haere i te taha i a Taurima, ko te Heamana o te Poari o Whakaata Māori, ko Jamie Tuuta rāua ko te Mema Poari, ko Kingi Kiriona. Kei Taiwan rātou i runga i te reo pōhiri a te Komiti Iti Papatairite ki Taiwan (wāhanga o te Komiti Take Ture Tāukiuki, Ture Hōu hoki mō ngā Iwi Taketake i te Tari o te Perehetini) kia tae ki te hui Wānanga Mana Tangata o te Ao, Take Ture Hōu mō ngā Iwi Taketake hoki 2019.
