Te Whare o Rongomaurikura, the Centre for Language Revitalisation, is located within Te Ipukarea Research Institute at AUT. The Centre is dedicated to upholding Te Ipukarea's commitment to the revitalisation of te reo Māori (the Māori language) as well as supporting Indigenous and endangered language revitalisation more generally.
Te Whare o Rongomaurikura, the Centre for Language Revitalisation, was established in 2011. It was conceptualised and developed in response to international inquiries and requests from language revitalisation groups interested in the work being developed by Te Ipukarea for the Māori language. The Centre has provided the opportunity to share the frameworks for these resources with other communitites so that Indigenous and endangered languages globally may benefit from the research conducted by Te Ipukarea for the Māori language.
Our long-standing motto, 'whakareia te kounga o te reo', reflects our pursuit of excellence in the scholarship, research, and teaching of te reo Māori (the Māori language).
