And he urged everyone involved in Mäori languagerevitalisation to talk to the review panel on the issues they saw, andthe solutions they proposed.Dr Sharples told the hui the Cabinet supported the review, becauseMinisters are aware of the difficult decisions that must be madewhen kaupapa Mäori are accountable for government funding. Hesaid he looked forward to taking the review report back to Cabinetwith recommendations from Mäori people about how the future ofte reo Mäori can be secured.For Dr Sharples’ full speech notes see link below:www.beehive.govt.nz/release/review+aims+benefit+maori+language

WHÄNAU ORAHon Tariana TuriaCOLUMNWhänau Ora represents asignificant investment in whänauand I am excited by the interestthat this innovative approach hasgenerated in its first few monthsof implementation.At its very core Whänau Orais about empowering whänauto take control of their future.What we want for our whänauis to be self-determining, to beliving healthy lifestyles, to beparticipating fully in society andto be economically secure.These are aspirations that wehope will translate into realoutcomes - outcomes thatexpress the power and potentialof our whänau to be the bestthey can be.And the potential for ourwhänau has never been greaterthan now and one of the mostincredible things for me hasbeen the opportunity to witnessthe level of optimism frompeople.I am delighted at the numberand calibre of providers whohave submitted proposals todeliver Whänau Ora.Te Puni Kökiri has received 130proposals from 347 providerswanting to deliver WhänauOra. Nearly 40 per cent of theexpressions of interest are fromprovider collectives.I am told that the calibre ofthe proposals is very high andthat an impressive numberof provider collectives havesubmitted strong proposals towork collaboratively to deliverWhänau Ora.The spirit of cooperation thatis being demonstrated to worktogether in the best interests ofwhänau is exciting and a greatsign for the future of whänau.I look forward to announcing theselected providers in October.Shortly afterwards, the WhänauEngagement Innovation andIntegration (WEII) Fund will openfor applications from whänauengaged with eligible providersincluding those selectedthrough the EOI process; andother health and social serviceproviders and NGOs like rünangaand hapu organisations, maraecommittees and whänau trusts- located in regions of high needor where services are lacking.Administered by Te Puni Kökiri,the WEII Fund will be availableto help our whänau developwhänau plans and implementdiscrete elements of thoseplans – so they can move togreater self reliance and selfmanagement by strengtheningtheir connections andengagement with each other,with other whänau and thewider community; developingwhänau leadership and buildingwhänau knowledge, skills andcapabilities.More information on the WEIIFund will be available in Octoberat www.tpk.govt.nz.
