    This Act replaces the Māori Language Act 1987 and amends the Broadcasting Act 1989 and the Māori Television Service (Te Aratuku Whakaata Irirangi Māori) Act 2003. Its purpose is to affirm the status of the Māori language as the indigenous language of New Zealand,
    a taonga of iwi and Māori as a language valued by the nation and highlight its place as an official language of New Zealand. It provides the means to support and revitalise the Māori language.
    For this, the Act establishes Te Mātāwai as an independent statutory entity to provide leadership on behalf of iwi and Māori in their role as kaitiaki of the Māori language. It provides for Te Mātāwai and the Crown to develop Māori language strategies to support the revitalisation of the Māori language, including by promoting an increase in the number of people speaking the Māori language and improving their fluency in that language. Finally, it adjusts the functions of Te Taura Whiri, Te Reo Whakapuaki Irirangi, and the Māori Television Service and disestablishes Te Pūtahi Paoho.
