The Maniapoto Māori Trust Board seek to strengthen and enhance te reo o Maniapoto. This will be achieved through collaboration with a number of stakeholders including Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto, Maniapoto kura and kohanga reo along with a number of other education providers and government departments.
- Support Maniapoto leadership throughout the regions thereby giving effect to “Te Mana Whatu Ahuru”;
- Our cultural identity and wellbeing are key priorities;
- Maintain and strengthen our reo to reach our full potential;
- Support and empower Maniapoto marae;
- Have capability to maintain relationships with whānau no matter where they are in the world;
- Whānau will be owners of their own well-being.
Te Rautaki Reo a te Nehenehenui Strategy
Our priority is to seek funding to implement the Te Rautaki Reo a Te Nehenehenui Strategy priority work programme. Once funding has been secured the Te Reo Advisory Group (Te Tumu) will be reconvened and a work programme initiated.
