I want my kids to grow up knowing reo Māori as normal, not begrudging the culture that is intrinsically woven alongside our own history.
There is no "us and them". It is simply people at the heart of life decisions.
That means every decision from protecting the land to revitalising language is about people.
To honour those that came before, and for the future of those that will come after.
Normalising hearing and speaking reo Māori is how we can contribute towards this - ordinary people taking small steps daily.
