Te reo Māori
Te Reo Māori is the indigenous language of Aotearoa, New Zealand. It is one of three official languages of the nation. The language itself is central to Māori culture, identity and forms part of the heritage of our country.
Whānau Ora puts whānau and families in control of the services they need to work together, build on their strengths and achieve their aspirations.
Whānau development through land is a key focus for Te Puni Kōkiri. It works with Māori and other government agencies to better support Māori land owners to make the most of their whenua.
Strengthening whānau resilience through developing wāhine and rangatahi Māori leadership contributes to thriving whānau. In this section you can find information about the programmes we deliver to help support whānau resilience.
