Pānui Pāpāho

Te Mātāwai in partnership with Te Pae Motuhake o Te Tai Hau-ā-uru wishes to advise the opening of the Te Tai Hau-ā-uru 2021-2022 Investment Round. One of the statutory functions of Te Mātāwai is to deliver initiatives and programmes that contribute to the implementation of the Maihi Māori Strategy so that the Māori Language is restored as a nurturing first language.

The investment round is now open, and it will close at 11:59pm on Wednesday the 30th of June 2021.

The Statement of Intent for Te Mātāwai 2021-2024 has just been refreshed, and so for this year’s Investment Round, Te Mātāwai would like all applications to align with our five strategic outcomes which focus on whānau wellbeing, intergenerational transmission, immersion domains, reo movements, and national identity. 

The Te Tai Hau-ā-uru Investment plan developed by the Pae Motuhake has several outcomes to support and grow the Māori language in the region. 

Karepa Wall, Te Mātāwai board member for Te Tai Hau-ā-uru says, “the most important thing for our people in Te Taiuru is to strengthen intergenerational transmission of our language in the communities, increase access to immersion domains, and plant the seed of desire to keep the language alive.”
