More Auckland parks will get Māori names after councillors today passed
support for a programme of telling the stories of Tāmaki and increasing the
visibility of te reo and Māori culture and history.

The decision to endorse Te Kete Rukuruku includes the Māori naming of parks
and places and in principle the inclusion of regional parks and cemeteries.

It is expected that, in most cases, Māori naming will be dual naming,
meaning a Māori name is added to the existing name to enrich the stories
about that place, while not taking away from a current name.

Signs will present both names in line with the Māori language policy and
signage guidelines, which means the te reo Māori name will be presented
first.

Te Kete Rukuruku is a programme involving the collection and telling of the
unique stories of Tāmaki Makaurau. It also involves the reclamation or
identification of new Māori names and narratives across Tāmaki Makaurau.

The measures, adopted by the environment and community committee during
Māori Language Week, responds to the council's Māori Language Policy
adopted in 2016.

Te Kete Rukuruku is a partnership between the council and the 19 mana
whenua of Tāmaki Makaurau. Mana whenua have been actively working on the
programme and have agreed on the new Māori naming process.

The first phase of the programme is focused on Māori naming of community
parks within the decision-making responsibility of local boards. Eleven
boards have joined the programme.

‪So much reo around te tēpu (the table) at Te Kaunihera o Tāmaki Makaurau
(Auckland Council) today. Ātaahua (beautiful)....

There are 53 regional parks and cemeteries under the governance of the
Environment and Community Committee, of which 32 per cent have an agreed
Māori name.

Committee chairwoman Penny Hulse said the council is honoured to be working
with mana whenua to showcase names and learn more about rich Māori history,
some of which have been long lost over many years.
