Marlborough's first Maori language symposium held

From Morning Report, 8:51 am on 20 May 2021

Revitalising te reo Māori in a region with no native speakers starts with individual whānau. 

That's the message being delivered to a sold-out audience of almost 500 people at Marlborough's first Māori language symposium. 

Some of the biggest exponents of te reo Māori have imparted advice and tips on how to bring the language back to the region - and the main message is to start small and in your household.
