This project utilised a kaupapa Māori research approach to investigate the motivations of three types of organisations that use and promote te reo Māori: Local Government Councils, English-medium Schools; and Private Businesses.

Ngā Hua a Tāne Rore | The Benefits of Kapa Haka

The purpose of this scoping project, commissioned by Te Manatū Taonga and Te Matatini, was to identify a research approach and develop a programme of potential research that will enable these two organisations and other interested stakeholders to further investigate the cultural, educational, social, health and economic benefits that Kapa Haka offers to communities throughout Aotearoa. Such research would also provide a better understanding of the contribution Kapa Haka makes to NZ Society.

Te Matataua o Te Reo

This research project was commissioned by Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.  The objectives of the research were to engage with a diverse range of stakeholders (individuals and groups who are actively involved with te reo Māori revitalisation and regeneration); and to identify their particular research/knowledge needs, interests and priorities in relation to te reo Māori regeneration and revitalisation, as well as their current research activities and access to resources.

This information will be used to inform the development of a National Research Agenda for the Regeneration and Revitalisation of te Reo Māori, which will be posted on the Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori website as a resource for Māori language communities and those involved in Māori language revitalisation initiatives and research.
