Carterton embraces reo revival
Carterton District Council intends to embrace Te Reo Māori.
Policy and strategy committee chair Ruth Carter says it will work with Hurunui o Rangi Marae to implement bilingual signage throughout the district.
She says it’s not just about translating existing signs into Te Reo Māori but about recognising the cultural names within the district.
It will also support national revitalisation efforts by supporting staff and elected representatives to learn Māori.
