Te Ataarangi founder Kāterina Te Heikōkō Mataira

In 1970 the National Council of Adult Education set up the Working Party on Maori Adult Education. The initiative was led by Ngoingoi Pēwhairangi, who went on to create the Māori-language programme Te Ataarangi with Kāterina Te Heikōkō Mataira (pictured) in 1979. Te Ataarangi was so successful that a national association of the same name was soon formed. The programme is still going strong in the 2010s.
