Te reo Māori, the Indigenous language of Aotearoa New Zealand Māori, suffered great marginalisation due to British colonisation, the effects of which are still experienced today. We interpreted national probability data from the New Zealand Attitudes and Values Study and constructed two models. Participants rated how strongly they supported teaching Māori language in New Zealand primary schools, from 1 (strongly oppose) to 7 (strongly support). Model 1 assessed how demographics related to support in 2015 (N = 15,821).

The MIFAS is the first large-scale (n = 7,019) nationwide study of Māori aged 18 and over that aims to correlate personal cultural beliefs and practices to economic choices.
