dc.description.abstract During the 1970s research showed that less than 20% of Māori people were proficient in the Māori language. Leading sociolinguists of that time predicted the Māori language would be extinct by 2000. This provided the impetus for the emergence of various Māori language revitalisation strategies. Te Whanake and Te Ataarangi are two examples of such diverse language acquisition programmes developed in response to these findings. This thesis will provide a comparative analysis of both programmes through an examination of the respective historical backgrounds, the methodological factors particular to each programme and consequently highlight why they continue to be successful models after 30 years at the forefront of Māori language revitalisation. en_NZ
