This is the vision of the Māori language strategy called the Maihi Māori that was developed by Māori for kāinga, hapori and iwi.
In 2017, Te Mātāwai met with stakeholders nationwide to gather feedback on Māori language initiatives in homes and communities, their aspirations for te reo Māori and the role of Te Mātāwai in realising these aspirations.  This feedback informed the development of the Maihi Māori 2017-2040 Strategy.
