Te Maihi Karauna.

Introduction to Maihi Karauna

Maihi Māori and Maihi Karauna are statutory strategies.

Maihi Māori is developed, issued and implemented by Te Mātāwai, a representative body of Māori.

Maihi Karauna is developed and issued by the Minister for Māori Development. It is implemented by Crown agencies and coordinated by Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori. Maihi Māori and Maihi Karauna each targets the key language planning elements of:

  • Status – people value te reo Māori
  • Critical awareness – people know te reo Māori is endangered and their role in revitalisation
  • Acquisition – people are learning te reo Māori
  • Use – people read, write and speak and comprehend te reo Māori in many places and circumstances (domains)
  • Corpus – the right words and terms are available for all circumstances (quality is a part of this)

The key aim of Maihi Karauna is to create an environment in which Maihi Māori has the greatest opportunity for success.

The Maihi Karauna includes specific roles for the key agencies of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Heritage, Internal Affairs, Māori Television, Te Māngai Paho Te Puni Kōkiri and Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.

There will be further details included here when the strategy is issued.

Implementation of the Maihi Karauna is the responsibility of each government agency. The coordination of their work is led by Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.
