This cross-sectorial study investigates the use of te reo Māori in three types of organisations (local council, secondary schools and companies) with the aim of contributing new knowledge towards the ‘normalisation’ of Māori language in wider New Zealand society.

Nine organisations that had made significant shifts towards normalisation of te reo in their respective sectors were identified and invited to participate in this project.

This research used a Kaupapa Māori theoretical and methodological approach that included the use of pūrākau and wānanga as research methods.
