Tā Tīmoti Karetu - Queens Birthday Honours

Sir Timoti Samuel Karetu (Ngai Tūhoe, Ngāti Kahungunu) received a knighthood for his services to Māori language during the month of June.  Karetu established the Department of Māori Studies at The University of Waikato as Head of Department and then Professor before becoming the inaugural Māori Language Commissioner at Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori (1987-1999). Karetu then became the Executive Director of Te Kōhanga Reo Trust until 2003, where he remains chairman.  He is currently the Executive Director of Te Panekiretanga o te Reo, the Institute of Excellence in Māori Language.  Karetu was also awarded Honorary Doctorates from Victoria University of Wellington in 2003 and The University of Waikato in 2008

Te Māngai Pāho wishes to acknowledge Sir Timoti Karetu for his continued dedication to the revitalisation and development of te reo Māori over the past 30 years. 
He kahika tū mahuta i te wai, he rangatira.


Matewa Media and Disney have agreed to partner up for the release of a te reo Māori version of the popular family film, Moana.  The search for a reo speaking Moana is well in progress with over 100 audition clips submitted to Matewa Media within the last 2 weeks since auditions were announced. 
The intended release of the re-versioned film will be during the launch of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori in September 2017.
