Call to protect Cook Island Maori language

From Sunday Morning, 7:25 am on 9 August 2015

Language advocates have called for more commitment from the government for Cook Islanders to celebrate their language and culture. Out of the 62,000 Cook Islanders who live in New Zealand, only about eight-thousand say they can speak the language. Daniela Maoate-Cox has been following the issue and she says the language is in a dire state.
