Te Reo RangatiraHe Reo Hei Rangaranga i Ngā Tira


We are calling for an innovative research proposal to develop a measurement framework for te reo Māori from a te ao Māori perspective. For us, this means te reo Māori is reframed as te reo rangatira – he reo hei rangaranga i ngā tira. This acknowledges the reo as crucial to mātauranga Māori as a vehicle that connects us to other people and to our environments across generations. This RFP will be a deliberate step away from (Western-based) socio-linguistic perspectives and is not a stocktake of existing measurement frameworks and measures. 

Proposals are due 3pm on 23 April 2021 to
