Ardern calls for efforts to get the basics right for Maori

From Waitangi Day 2020, 8:11 am on 6 February 2020

The Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern says the Government must address housing and child poverty before it can begin resolving wider aspirations for Maori, but she says she also wants New Zealand history taught in schools and for more children to be learning Te Reo Maori. Ms Ardern says her Government has been focused on those issues in tandem in the past two years.
