The Health of the Māori Language in Waikato 2006

Conclusions

Since the last HML Survey in 2001, the general health of the Māori language in Waikato 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, the Raukawa Trust Board is recovering Raukawa lexicon and promoting the use of te reo amongst Raukawa whānau. 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 Waikato.
