Te Reo Māori

The reo Māori initiatives below are aimed at increasing the visibility, the application and the everyday usage of te reo Māori in multiple contexts including but not limited to Orākei and the homes of hapū members, in both spoken and written forms.

It seeks to make visible and audible the Māori language so that it permeates our environment and reaches the ears and hearts of our people to advance the cultural capital, health and identity of our people

Me kōrero Māori ngā uri me ngā kaimahi katoa o Ngāti Whātua ki roto i ngā kāinga,


tae atu ki ngā puna reo, kura, wāhi mahi, puta noa ki ngā marae

All NWO staff and descendants, regardless of their level or knowledge, to improve their proficiency in the Māori language by 2020.
