Māori Language and Auckland’s unique identity

Auckland Council recognises that Māori language is a cultural treasure and an official language of New Zealand. We acknowlege that Māori language and culture forms a critical part of “a Māori identity that is Auckland’s point of difference in the world”.

Through this policy and the related implementation plan Council is committed to the Māori language being seen, heard, spoken and learnt throughout Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland and that Council is able to contribute to the celebration, protection, revitalisation and the integration of Māori Language throughout its functions and activities.
