Maori is the language spoken by the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand, mainly in the North Island, and it has been one of New Zealand's 3 official languages since 1987. It's closely related to the language spoken in the Cook Islands (known as Cook Islands Maori or Rarotongan).
The Maori call their language either te reo Maori (the Maori language) or simply Maori . Until the Second World War most Maori spoke te reo as their first language. Before the war, about 75% of Maori lived in rural areas. Two decades later, approximately 60% lived in urban centres and English become dominant. Thanks to a major Maori-language renaissance in the 1980s, Maori is once again heard throughout Aotearoa (Maori for New Zealand), and Maori art, songs, dance, and traditional carving are being brought back along with the language.
The word Maori means common or ordinary, but this is definitely an extraordinary language!
