Ko Hēmi Pōtatau

Ko Hēmi Pōtatau

He minita Perehipitiriana, he kaiwhakarauora i te reo Māori a Hēmi Pōtatau (nō Ngāti Kahungunu me Ngāti Rākaipaaka). Koia te kaitaurima o te Rōpū o Te Reo Māori, i whakapau kaha, i ngākau-nui hoki ki te kōkiri i āna pitihana kia whakaurua te reo Māori ki ngā kura o te motu, me tētahi pitihana kia tīmataria he wāhanga Māori i roto i ngā mahi whakaata. Anei ia i te tau 1978, e kōrerorero ana ki ngā tauira o te Kura o Mt Cook mō taua petihana kia whakatūria he wāhanga Māori mō ngā mahi whakaata. Nāwai rā, ka tutuki tēnei tono.
