    Wonder if maori is broadcasted to let foreigners know it is the official (supposedly) language in NZ. Many older school/senior generational kiwi's are more likely to reject it, - as evident in our forum. They see it as irrelevant and will likely denigrate it. Foreigners may not readily do so - since many speak more than two languages, and therefore more accommodating to maori (or other pacific related languages) . It has to be something else than it being useful as a global language, as many expect it to be. also french - I reckon they don't care about our country, they hardly ever seem to come here, and probably don't early learn our language

    Many of our suburbs in Auckland are becoming India-nated, Asia-nated, Islander-nated and Afrikaner-nated. I seen it - many older kiwi's are disappearing - that might be more concern - since those languages might become more dominated. Female Councillor employee in Pakuranga/Manukau told me a certain race wanted name changes to their ethnicity culture names - for an area they have no right, or affiliation too. Told them no...

    I don’t know they are spending so much money on a language that only a small percentage of the population speak.

    Sounds ****ed up to me.

    Which is where the problems will come from for maori. Regardless of any views on the language, these are races that don't give a flying F about political-correctness, or walking on eggshells around maori.
    They'll push back and larf when called 'racist'.

    It is mostly all about either making money, (teaching it etc) or being PC to get votes (Local & Central Government}. Whilst there are some genuine people who are interested in keeping the language Maori is about as much use in NZ as Welsh is in the UK.

    You think? Lived in one?
    At Ranui we were pretty diverse. The maori/samoan family on one side, the Indian on the other, him and his asian wife and kids on the side over from them, the tongans across the road, the chinese family next to them. We all got on.

    No rudeness at all.

    The ones who were the issue were behind in the HNZ zone. Well, 2 of them anyway, not all of them.

    Well how about this for Racism?

    "A prohibited fire season has been declared for the Bay of Plenty Coast, Central Lakes, and Pumicelands.
    Principal Rural Fire Officer Steve Webb says all fire permits have been suspended in those areas.
    "A prohibited fire season means no fires are permitted as the fire danger is too high," Steve Webb says. "During a prohibited fire season only gas and charcoal barbeques can be used".
    "Hangi are still allowed, but we are asking people planning hangi to contact us first as conditions are becoming very dry and we may want to put additional protection in place."
    For Hangi advice contact Fire and Emergency on 07 858 7612"
