01 June 2021
Te Mātāwai in partnership with Te Pae Motuhake o Ngā Paemanu o Tainui wishes to advise the opening of the Tainui 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 Friday the 25th 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 Tainui Investment plan developed by the Pae Motuhake has several outcomes to support and grow the Māori language in the region.
Tiare Tepana, Te Mātāwai Co-chair and board member for Tainui says, “Tiare Tepana, Te Mātāwai Co-chair and board member for Tainui says, “The Tainui 2021 Investment Round aims to achieve three main goals. Firstly, to restore te reo Māori as a nurturing first language within homes in the Tainui region. Secondly, to have the Māori language be spoken across marae in the Tainui region. And lastly, to have the language be heard across kaupapa and streets within Tainui. To achieve this, we plan to research, develop, and promote Tainui iwi and hapū dialect through intergenerational transmission, immersion domains and language planning with language champions.”
