What is the vision for Te Mātāuru ki Te Reo Tukutuku?
"He tūmatakahuki, he reo tukutuku!"
Tūmatakahuki is a stitch used solely in the construction of tukutuku, binding both vertical and horizontal slats together.
The vision statement uses this as a metaphor for te reo me ōna tikanga - the stitch that binds and connects all four sectors of te Kāhui ā-reo tukutuku and the stitch woven across generations thus ensuring its sustainability.
What are the principles for Te Mātāuru ki Te Reo Tukutuku?
The investment plan is founded upon the mātāpono of Te Mātāwai.
He reo tuku iho te reo taketake o Aotearoa - The indigenous language of Aotearoa is culturally transmitted
Ko ngā iwi me ngāi Māori ngā purutanga mauri o ‘Te Whare o Te Reo Mauri Ora’ - Māori people are the custodians of the vitality of 'Te Whare o Te Reo Mauri Ora'
Poua, whakatipuria, tāwharautia te reo ūkaipō i roto i ngā hapori - Reintroduce, grow and protect Māori language as a nurturing first language in our communities
Kia raka te mauī, kia raka te katau - The Crown and Māori work together towards a shared vision
Kia ū ki te wairua Māori - Be true to Māori ethos
The Pae Motuhake considered these principles to be the best foundation for Te Reo Tukutuku because of the alignment to the cluster’s national identity, additionally of the eight kāhui, Te Reo Tukutuku is the one closely associated to the Maihi Karauna, therefore the principle Kia raka te mauī, kia raka te katau - the Crown and Māori work together towards a shared vision, will inform Pae Motuhake investment decisions.
