‘Mind your language’: Our responsibility to protect and promote Pacific Islands languages in New Zealand (2010) A paper prepared by Komiti Pasifika for the 2010 Annual conference.
This paper has arisen from the issue of the demise of Pacific Islands languages among Pasifika populations in New Zealand, which was raised at the Auckland/ Counties Manukau Pacific Island Teachers Seminar in 2008 and at the PPTA Pasifika ‘Niu Generation’ Conference in 2009. Since then, ongoing discussion on the issue has been forthcoming in the form of a further Pacific Islands Teachers Seminar (December 2009), which created the Pacific Languages Network (PLN). The PLN meets regularly to strategise on ways forward and report on the progress that is
being made in this area.
