The delivery of initial teacher education for Māori medium contexts in Aotearoa seeks to support the revitalization of the indigenous language and practices in collaboration with the current education system. This presentation introduces a research project begun early in 2013 with providers, student teachers, schools and communities involved in respective Māori medium programmes. This research project has a "positive output approach" where fundamental elements to the success of these various programmes are shared. The wide range of Māori medium initial teacher education settings is investigated. Consequences from the research findings will also be discussed.
