Ka mahi a Te Puni Kōkiri mā te iwi Māori kia mauri tau ai, kia māia, kia ngaio hoki ki te reo Māori, ahurea Māori hoki.
He āhuatanga whānui ō te ahurea, mai i ngā toi tuku iho – o nāianei hoki – tae atu ki ngā tikanga ahurea pērā i te kohikohi kai moana. He whakahirahira ngā muka o te papanga ahurea Māori te whakapapa, arā, ko ngā hononga o te tangata ki te iwi, te hapū, te whānau me te marae.
Ko te reo Māori tētahi taonga o te ahurea e waiwai tonu ana ki te iwi Māori, ā, ka tiakina i raro i Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Ko tā Te Puni Kōkiri he ārahi i te wāhanga ki te kāwanatanga kia tautoko i te whakarauora i te reo Māori.
Ka tautoko mātou i te iwi Māori ki te whakamarumaru, ki te tiaki, ki te whakatipu hoki i ō rātou reo, taonga, mātauranga, tikanga hoki. Ko te hiahia kia tokomaha ake te hunga kōrero Māori, ā, kia tautuhia, kia whāia hoki e ngā whānau, e ngā hapū, e ngā iwi hoki ō rātou ake tino whakawhanaketanga ahurea.
