Te Reo Hāpai – the language of enrichment

Updating and creating Māori language used

Keri Opai, Paeārahi Māori strategic lead for Te Pou o te Whakaaro Nui is leading an initiative updating and creating Māori language used in the mental health, addiction and disability sectors.

The project is called “Te Reo Hāpai – the language of enrichment”.

There is an appetite for using te reo properly; correctly and with respect. This project is researching and creating Māori words and terms that adequately and accurately reflect the best use of Te Reo Māori in the mental health, addiction and disability sectors in 2016 and into the future.
