Investment plans and priorities are set by the eight Kāhui and contribute towards achieving our five outcome areas:

  1. Whānau wellbeing / oranga o te whānau: more whānau feeling confident in navigating their own Māori language journey
  2. Immersion domains / rumaki: whānau have increased access to bilingual and immersion domains throughout Aotearoa
  3. Intergenerational transmission / reo tuku iho: more whānau have increased their daily use of Māori language across generations
  4. Reo movements ­/ kōkiritanga reo: increased number of whānau connected to movements where Māori language and identity is promoted and enhanced
  5. Iwi identity / tuakiri: whānau have an improved sense of iwi identity when Māori language is visible and valued at a local and national level

Pae Motuhake, representing iwi and Māori interests, develop the investment plan and key priorities for each Kāhui and make recommendations to the Board of Te Mātāwai for approval.
