This week Tai spoke about the important aspects of reo retention by the many media technology available to us.

In his korero, he included TumekeFM, Maui Productions and Te Whare Wananga o Awanuiarangi as such media with both input and outlet avenues available to broadcast the Maori language to the world.

Tai used Awanuiarangi as an example of student participation and Tumeke as a conduit. Reuben used his avenue of research in capturing audio and picture of our people in days gone by to maintain the Maori language in today’s world and indeed for our generation still yet to come.

Tai alluded to technology use to capture both voice and visual form with such digital machinery as drones.
