The government's latest strategy to futureproof the Māori language is out and they're seeking public submissions.

It’s a move set out in the latest Māori Language Act, passed in 2016.

Te Maihi Karauna aims to revitalise the language and set achievable goals by 2040 within the crown's government sectors. The strategy complements the Maihi Māori, the language strategy in homes and communities led by Māori language entity Te Mātāwai.

The public consultation runs from August 3 to September 20.
