New book on the value of the Māori Language

Value_of_Maori_Language_webTe Tumu staff member, Associate Professor Poia Rewi and Professor Rāwinia Higgins of Te Kawa a Māui (Victoria University of Wellington) have released an edited collection, The Value of the Māori Language: Te Hua o te Reo Māori, with Huia Publishers. The book features 25 essays from an illustrious field of Māori commentators, responding to  the question ‘What is the value of the Māori language?’ more than twenty five years after the passing of the Māori Language Act.

The book was launched recently in Wellington at an event attended by many of the big names of Māori-language education.

This publication is one output emerging from Poia and Rāwinia’s three-year project, Te Kura Reo – Waiora, research funded by Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga.
