Ngati Kahungunu Te Reo Strategy Review Hui

  • Ratings12345


The iwi’s Te Reo director Jeremy Tatere McLeod says it’s the first major review of progress since the tribe launched a strategic revitalisation plan in 2006.

He says, given that the week before Christmas people are usually worried about last minute shopping, there was a surprisingly good turnout at hui held in mid-December in Napier and Wairoa.

Mr McLeod says many in Ngati Kahungunu are “hui’ed out”, after what has been a huge year with discussions over partial state asset sales and Maori rights to water taking up a lot of people’s time and energy.

He says the attendance at both hui was a clear signal of the passion iwi members have for the Maori language.

The filliwing hui is coming up to ensure that members of Ngati Kahungunu in all rohe can take part in the strategic revitalisation review for Te Reo.

Te Reo Strategy Review Hui

Ngati Kahungunu Iwi Inc. is currently reviewing The Strategic Plan for the Revitalization of Te Reo o Ngati Kahungunu 2006-2027.

In line with this, they are facilitating several review hui throughout the iwi rohe to allow their members to share their advice and thoughts on the moving forward of the strategy.
