He Mahere Whakapuaki Reo (2018 - 2021)

Earlier last month, the Māori media sector celebrated the launch of He Mahere Whakapuaki Reo (2018-2021), a new strategy for the Māori media sector.

The strategy is a catalyst for change that provides the Māori media sector with a new strategic direction. Although the strategy will help inform funders like Te Māngai Pāho, it is not a funding model.

Te Pae Tawhiti, a new Māori media advisory body widely representative of the sector (independent Māori content producers, Māori and mainstream broadcasters, iwi radio, and funding agencies) is tasked with guiding the implementation of the strategy and ‘shaking the tree’ as it advocates  for the Māori media sector.

The level of collaboration implicit in the development of the new strategy, is an indication that the sector recognises the need to work collectively to ensure that Māori media has real impact on the promotion and revitalisation of te reo Māori.using

The strategy has four key focus areas – audience, creation, accessibility and capacity.

In an increasingly digital world, the strategy sets out a plan to re-envisage Māori broadcasting and to meet our audiences where they are consuming content.

Rapidly fragmenting audiences for traditional linear broadcast platforms together with the advancement of new technologies create new challenges for content producers and broadcasters as consumers continue to be in control of the content they consume.

To capture the scale and context of these changes in the broadcasting environment Māori content needs to be platform agnostic, and must be shared through all means of communication through broadcasting, media and technology in a modern context.

While convergence of media is impacting broadcasting and media globally, the Māori media sector recognises that failure to respond to this changing environment is a real threat to Māori language revitalisation.

It is a worldwide phenomenon as audiences drive a change from the ‘push’ model, where broadcasters push content out to audiences, to a consumer driven ‘demand’ model, where audiences actively seek out content relevant to them.

You can find the strategy on the Te Māngai Pāho website:
