Revival of Māori Language Society

Nā te wero nui a Te Uepū Reo Māori o Te Whare Wānanga o Wikitoria i whakaturengia e te Kāwanatanga te reo Māori hei reo rangatira o te whenua nei i ngā tau ki muri.

He rōpū e whakaarangia ake anō e tētahi kaiako Māori o te Whare Wānanga nei, e Vini Olsen-Reeder.

Hei tā Vini Olsen-Reeder, “Te kaupapa tuatahi o Te Hohaiti kia whai waahi ai ngā tauira ki te kōrero i Te Reo Māori i waho i te karaehe.”

I ngā tau whitu tekau, i noho a Tamati Kruger hei mema whakatū i te rōpū nei, engari he tekau tau whai muri i tērā, i whakakorengia te rōpū ra.  Nā to rātou kaha ki te wero i te kāwanatanga, i whakatūria ai te ture Reo Māori, ā ka whakamanatia te reo i Aotearoa nei.

Hei tana Olsen-Reeder, “Ko te wananga i ngā kaupapa nui, ngā kaupapa whakahirahira o te wa e pā ana ki Te Reo Māori ara ko te pire Reo Māori hou te rautaki Reo Māori hou era momo kaupapa.”

Heoi ko te tumanako ka puta atu tenei kaupapa ki ngā kokonga e whā o te motu.
