TG4/Whakaata Maori partnership to uphold cultural values and exchange resources

Thu, Jun 06, 2024

TG4 and Whakaata M?ori are delighted to announce the signing of a Relationship Agreement aimed at fostering a strategic partnership to uphold common values and achieve shared outcomes through the exchange of resources, knowledge, and services. This landmark agreement, signed at the 45th Celtic Media Festival in Cardiff, represents a major milestone in enhancing the connection between the M?ori and Irish-speaking communities.

Alan Esslemont, TG4’s Director General, said; “TG4 was recently honoured to have the Aotearoa/ New Zealand Ambassador to Ireland, Trevor Mallard, as a guest at Gradam Ceoil TG4 in Limerick and we are now delighted to strengthen our ties with Whakaata M?ori, the M?ori television service. Within the history of global colonisation, the Irish people have been both the ‘dispossessed’ and the ‘dispossessors’ and I believe that we have much to discover from the experiences and world-view of the M?ori people. The parallels are evident to me between te reo M?ori and an Ghaeilge, their communities of speakers and their revitalisation efforts. In addition, TG4 and Irish media strategy can learn much from media policies concerning M?ori broadcasting and other Aotearoa/New Zealand media.”
