Native Affairs - Speaking Out

Last year Finnian Galbraith spoke to a handful of his schoolmates, in a school speech competition at Kapiti College, urging them to take more care with their pronunciation of te reo Māori.

Last week he put his speech online and so far it has had more than 250,000 views. 

In a moment we'll get reaction from two media mavens, Stacey Morrison and Kanoa Lloyd, but first here's Billie Jo with Finnian's story.
