There is no shame

in not being able to speak te reo Māori

OPINION: The seven-day national spotlight on te reo Māori and Māoritanga has been a joy to behold. It made me feel good and I whimsically imagined every day could be this way in the future.
Then a blustery south-west wind blew and the bitter cold reality set in.

We will never be a bilingual nation when people caution against it because they don’t want to lose any of their privileges and would rather espouse the virtues of the superior English language instead.
