"The Ministry for Pacific Peoples works closely with Pacific communities to maintain and promote heritage languages. Part of this work is the Ministry’s support for Pacific Language Weeks, which have grown significantly since Samoan Language Week was first celebrated in 2007.

Pacific Languages Framework

The vision of the Pacific Languages Framework is ‘Pacific Languages Are Flourishing’. This vision will be realised by evidence of more people using Pacific languages with skill and fluency in everyday situations, particularly children and young people. Those Pacific languages now at risk will be revitalised, and their future assured. Pacific peoples’ sense of personal and cultural belonging in New Zealand will be enhanced by the support given to Pacific languages. New Zealanders will appreciate and value Pacific languages as a source of pride in New Zealand’s rich cultural diversity. The Government and Pacific communities will be working in partnership to maintain and promote Pacific languages."
