More Info

The Māori Language Petition, supported by 30,000 signatories, was presented to Parliament on 14 September 1972, calling for courses in Māori language and culture to be offered in New Zealand schools. The petition became a pivotal flashpoint for the revitalisation of te reo Māori, leading to the Government introducing te reo Māori as an option in primary and secondary schooling. Other revitalisation initiatives also came out of the petition, including kōhanga reo, kura kaupapa and Māori broadcasting.

Tama Tū, Reo Ora – Te Petihana 1972, is about celebrating 50 years since the Māori Language Petition was presented to parliament. It provides an opportunity for the Ministry of Education to pay tribute to the education stalwarts that fought for te reo Māori to have a place in education and to acknowledge the contribution they have made to revitalising and furthering the Ministry’s te reo Māori aspirations.
