Iwinfografix 2: State of Te Reo Maori 2013

As I post this, the Census 2013 has been completed. Moreover, Te Kupenga which I led the developent of, is a sample survey of Maori that goes into the field in June. The results of both these surveys will update the statistical data we have on the state of te reo Maori regarding speakers and users of the language. (To be clear, the Education department provides administrative info on who is learning te reo, while Te Mangai Paho has numbers on those who listen to and view Maori language media, and finally, TPK do some regular surveys on public attitudes and values regarding te reo Maori.)

I have yet to see anywhere that someone trys to chunk up all that we know right now and paint a simple, helpful picture.

This is me mucking around with some ideas about this narrative – kei te pewhea te ora o te reo Maori?

Nga mihi


State of Te Reo
