Whānau Ora provides practical, community-based support to whānau so they can be self-managing and determine their own economic, cultural and social development.

The revitalisation of the Māori language began during the 1970s. By then, few Māori families spoke Māori, and there were fears that it was in danger of dying out as an everyday language.
This led to the development of initiatives such as Te Kohanga Reo, Kura Kaupapa Māori and Te Ataarangi. By the mid-1980s, the focus has widened to include Māori broadcasting, which eventually led to the establishment of the Māori Broadcasting Funding Agency, Te Māngai Pāho, and the current network of iwi radio stations.
