Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at Waitangi 2019

Feb. 6, 2019, 9:16 a.m.

The Prime Minister states that it is 'a regret of mine' that she didn't learn te reo Māori and goes on to discuss the aspirations for education about te ao Māori for the next generation. She also spoke about her admiration for Tā Hekenukumai Puhipi and the knowledge forms that he revived. She hopes that more New Zealanders will learn more about Māori waka and star traditions, especially as we come to acknowledge the first encounter with Captain Cook.
