Te Mātāwai

Our primary goal is to restore Māori as a nurturing first language within Māori homes and communities.
We are an independent entity, working in partnership with the Crown to lead Māori language revitalisation for iwi Māori as Kaitiaki of the Māori language. Te Mātāwai was established by Te Ture mō te Reo Māori (Māori Language Act 2016).

The hunger for te reo Māori amongst whānau, hapori and iwi continues to grow.

Experience the revival as whānau confidently pave their own way, blending reo with modern life.

We have resources to support your reo Māori journey:

  • Watch our Videos to learn from past kaitono and their efforts to revitalise the Māori language in homes and communities.
  • Read our Research that covers a range of Māori language revitalisation topics.
  • Check out our Events page to see what kaupapa are happening in your region.
