Ngāi Te Rangi Iwi Community Action Research Project
This research was a community action research project dedicated to identifying ways in which to advance Te Reo
Māori within the homes of Ngāi Te Rangi whānau. The research team worked with whānau to develop strategies for ‘learning interventions’ that can operate within the community, and within the home. The results indicate that increasing language in the home depends on more inter-whānau relationships, inter-whānau dynamics and intra-personal dynamics then it does on language course history, language inputs or even the process of language acquisition itself.
