Lack of resources

For books and resources, check out your local library which usually stock a great collection of books in te reo Māori for you to borrow FREE.  

All schools have great collections of Māori language resources but not all are used a lot of the time so hit up the teacher at your local school and set up a resource library for your whānau and possibly other whānau to access.

Many bookshops have access to Māori language books and games but not all of them carry them in stock.  If you can't find them on the shelves ask to check out their catalogues, as they may just need to order these in for you.

There are also a number of fantastic websites which are now available to support Māori language speakers and learners. Check out our links pages to see this.

KMK have also produced a number of resources to support families in the home.  Many of these would have already been sent out to KMK registered whānau, but if yours went missing, check out our online copies which you can download at your leisure.

Don't forget to check out your local Māori radio station or Māori language programmes, which are now readily available on TV.

There is more access to Māori language resources available now than ever before.
