Māori Television is New Zealand’s indigenous broadcaster, providing a wide range of local and international programmes for audiences across the country and online. Māori language is a taonga (treasure) at the heart of Māori culture and New Zealand’s unique cultural identity. Launched in 2004, Māori Television has two key long-term objectives:

  • To significantly contribute to the revitalisation of the Māori language; and
  • To be an independent Māori television service that is relevant, effective and widely accessible.
