Over the past few years, and driven by Governor Adrian Orr, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand has undergone an overhaul that puts the country’s Māori heritage and language at the centre of its operations, Newshub reveals. The changes are part of a drive to elevate Māori culture, language and society in policymaking and promote indigenous perspectives on issues including climate change and sustainability. “When we are using Māori and the cultural stories we need to explain those and translate those into English to bring everyone along with us,” said Assistant Governor Christian Hawkesby.
