Story: Te reo Māori

'Ko te reo te mauri o te mana Māori'

Ko te hōtaka o Waka huia o te tau 1988, ko Tā Hemi Henare kei te kōrero mō te oranga o te reo, “Ko te reo te mauri o te mana Māori”. I puta i a ia tēnei kōrero ki mua i te aroaro o Te Rōpū Whakamana i te Tiriti o Waitangi i te tau 1985; i te mutunga iho whakahuatia ai i te pūrongo a te Taraipiunara, inā te roanga ake:

Ko te reo te mauri o te mana Māori.
Ko te kupu te mauri o te reo Māori.
E rua ēnei wehenga kōrero e hāngai tonu ana ki runga i te reo Māori.
Ko te reo, nō te Atua mai.
