Te Haki Māori ki ngā kura
E tika ana kia karapepe te haki Māori ki ngā kura katoa.
Koia te wero kua whakatakotoria e Te Ata Tino Toa ki mua i ā Minita Mātauranga i ā Hēkia Parata.
Kua tuhi reta taua rōpū ki te Minita, hai tā Te Ao Pritchard, kāhore e kore ka whakaae ā Parata ki tā rātou īnoi.
Hai tā Pritchard anō, ka piri tata te whakaaro mō te haki ki ngā kura, ki ngā uara e whakatairangatia ai e te Minita.
Group wants schools to fly Māori flag
The tino rangatiratanga flag could be flown at all state schools if a Māori lobby group has its way.
Te Ata Tino Toa, which campaigned to fly the flag on the Auckland Harbour Bridge, has asked Education Minister Hekia Parata to back the move.
Spokesperson Te Ao Pritchard says it would help schools engage with Māori, and promote Māori language and culture.
She says it’s common in Australia for the Aboriginal flag to fly from schools.
