te reo o maniapoto

Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto Broadcasting Māori Language Plan aligns to the core goals of Te Rautaki Reo a Te Nehenehenui that was initiated by our License holder, Maniapoto Māori Trust Board in 2009, and was reviewed in 2017.

This Broadcasting Māori Language Plan for Te Reo Irirangi o Maniapoto is an expression of desire that te reo be more widely heard and felt.

TRIoM continues to lead and implement Te Reo revitalisation initiatives related to Te Rautaki Reo a Te Nehenehenui. Aspects of language revitalisation theory are contextualised to Te Nehenehenui features, and will continue to be made relevant to TRIoM practise.
