I believe that learning te reo Māori is the most important way that pākehā and other ethnicities can build deep understanding and respect for te ao Māori and address institutional and casual racism.
I believe that learning te reo Māori is the most important way that pākehā and other ethnicities can build deep understanding and respect for te ao Māori and address institutional and casual racism. And in this troubled time of such huge global challenges mātauranga Māori offers the best opportunity Aotearoa has to respond in a positive way to these huge global and national challenges. For there to be any hope of a positive future for today's rangatahi and coming generations Aotearoa needs to embrace mātauranga Māori and concepts of kaitiakitanga. The reo opens the door to mātauranga Māori and the opportunity to build a strong united Aotearoa fit to face the challenges of today and tomorrow.
