The Health of the Māori Language in Te Tairāwhiti / Takitimu 2006

Conclusions

Since the last HML Survey in 2001, the general health of the Māori language in Te Tairāwhiti/Tākitimu has improved. The full report provides valuable information to inform the work of language planners who have already implemented targeted initiatives to address some of the issues revealed in the report. For example, Ngāti Kahungunu Iwi Incorporated is working to raise critical awareness amongst whānau and collecting Kahungunu lexicon. Over the next five years, the combined efforts of iwi and community groups have the potential to further improve the picture of language health in Te Tairāwhiti/Tākitimu.
