Hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders joined together to speak, sing and celebrate te reo at midday on Monday. This "Maori Language Moment", part of Te Wiki o te reo Maori, was the single largest celebration of the Maori language in Aotearoa's history, So how can events like these contribute to the goal of getting 1 million Maori language speakers by 2040? Joining us to discuss is Professor Rawinia Higgins, the Chair of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Maori chair/The Maori Language Commission. As well as being an eminent Maori studies scholar, she's also a member of the Waitangi Tribunal, and a passionate advocate for all things te ao Maori.
