Right. My understanding of the situation is really just from reading things online and a brief visit. From what I have gathered there is a big movement to promote Maori language learning, both by the government and and others. And that although the number of truly fluent Maori speakers is very low, there is a keen interest and that using Maori language shows committment to New Zeland-ness.
And if kids are learning some Maori in school, then having suttas in Maori language helps to promote a integrated language awareness.
@mikenz66, do you have any ideas about how I might go about this, considering I can’t say anything in Maori other than hello?
