Te Reo o te Pā Harakeke is a research project that began in 2017 that sought to understand the factors that contribute to successful intergenerational transmission of the Māori language in the home. The project focused on the most effective strategies, methods, and resources in establishing and maintaining the Māori language as the first language in the home with the intention of raising Māori speaking children.

One of the outputs from this project is a resource book which was created for the whānau who participated in the research.  We think it can help other whānau too, so Te Ipukarea has decided to make it available as a free downloadable pdf.  For those of you who prefer the hard copy (bound with dividers for each of the sections), we will be doing a ONE-off print run of the resource book.  The cost of the book is $22.00 which includes GST and postage.  To order books, complete the order form by the deadline of 07 May and send your completed form to Tania Smith via email at
