I runga i te tūranga hou o te Tumuaki Pūmanawa Tangata, Reo me ngā Tikanga, ka hono mai a Pouroto Ngaropo ki Whakaata Māori i te marama o Whiringa ā-nuku 2015. Atu i ngā mahi Pūmanawa Tangata, ā, kia wairua Māori ai a Whakaata Māori, ka titiro taketake te tūranga nei ki ērā tikanga. Ko te whakawhanake i te rautaki ahurea, reo Māori me te hunga tōpū tētahi o ana mahi hei māngai mō te reo me ngā tikanga Māori. Kia ea ai te wawata kia reorua ngā kaimahi katoa o Whakaata Māori i mua o te tau 2020, kua mātua whakaritea he rautaki reo Māori kia whai wāhi ai ngā kaimahi ki te ako i te reo Māori.
