Auckland will continue to provide, invest in and support opportunities that celebrate Māori identity and heritage. We can create experiences to share Māori culture in its many forms through a variety of channels that can be seen, heard, spoken and felt.
A culturally vibrant Tāmaki Makaurau showcases Māori art, music and performance locally and globally.
Continued expansion and resourcing is needed for events, and activities associated with Māori events, such as Matariki. Celebrations steeped in Māori culture can ignite all cultures in Auckland to celebrate their relationship with the land.
Te reo Māori, the Māori language, is fundamental to a thriving Māori identity for Tāmaki Makaurau. A bilingual Tāmaki Makaurau can be demonstrated through language on signs, heard on modes of transport and reflected on media platforms.
