Ka tirohia ia tono i raro i ngā āhuatanga e rima o te whakarauoratanga, he wāhanga tērā o ngā rautaki whakarauora o te Karauna, me te Iwi Māori (ko Te Mātāwai tōna māngai).

Anei aua āhuatanga, ko te Mana, ko te Mārama Pū ki te Whakaora Reo, ko te Ako i te Reo, ko te Kōrerotanga o te Reo, ko te Puna Reo.


Nō te tau 2004 kua whakanuia Ngā Tohu Reo Māori i ia tau, i ia tau, ā, neke atu i te kotahi rau ngā tono ka tae mai i ia tau.

E kī ana te Tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori a Ngahiwi Apanui e haere ngātahi ana ngā tohu o tēnei tau me Te Tau o ngā Reo Taketake o te Ao (IYIL 2019).
“Kua rongo te ao i ā mātou mahi whakatairanga i te reo Māori, ā, e ako ana anō hoki mātou i ngā mahi whakanui reo ā ētahi atu.

Kāore i tua atu, kāore i tua mai i te angitu o tā tātou Wiki o te Reo Māori i tēnei tau, i hōrapa tōna rongo ki te tini me te mano o tātou a ngāi Aotearoa.  E hāngai ana te titiro ki tā mātou whāinga o te kotahi miriona tāngata e kōrero Māori ana hei te tau 2040”.

“Me whakanui ō tātou Toa Reo Māori. Kaua e whakamā! Mehemea kei te mōhio koe ki tētahi tangata, tētahi whakahaere rānei e tika ana kia whakanuia, tono mai ināianei ki tā mātou paetukutuku”.

He kōrero anō:
