The Legal Māori Resource Hub on a national stage…The Video…

So here’s what I was doing last Wednesday, giving an address at the National Digital Forum about the Legal Māori Resource Hub. Watch it (and other marvellous presentations) here.

Words matter, and the history of how words are used also matters. In New Zealand English has been the presumed normal language of law, but there is another story; that of te reo Māori and how Māori has been a language of Western and Māori law since the early decades of the 19th century. The new Legal Māori Resource Hub (www.legalmaori.net.nz) provides an extraordinary interactive resource that enables modern users to explore the Māori language and its vocabulary in a way that has not been easily possible before. Bring your own devices to this presentation, and be prepared to have a tutu (play)!
