Following the inspiration of Ōtaki and Rotorua, the capital city is on the waka to becoming a bilingual city. Ka mau te wehi!
Wellington City is currently consulting on Te Tauihu, their draft te reo Māori policy.
You don’t need to be a te reo speaker or live in Te Whanganui-a-Tara to make a submission. Nor do you need to write a lengthy submission (but of course do if you want to!). The only thing that is really required at this stage is speed as submissions close at 5pm on Monday 12th March.
It’s important to make a submission, not just because it’s an important step for the capital but also because numbers matter. It’s an opportunity show your support. Karawhuia!
