Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori

The Minister of Māori Affairs, Pita Sharples (left), and Glenis Philip-Barbara, chief executive of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori – the Māori Language Commission – participate in a celebrity bakeoff during Māori language week in 2010. The theme of the week was te mahi kai (the language of food), reflecting the commission's drive to reinforce the use of the Māori language in the home.
