Rapunga Google

Google search is now available in Māori.

I've checked the language selection page on occasion to see if Māori was available, but I wasn't overly surprised each time I discovered it wasn't. With only 725,000 Māori people and only 157,000 Māori language speakers I figured it wasn't a high priority.

So why is it that Māori has become available now? Because there were a dedicated group of volunteers that wanted to make it happen. Kudos to Google for making it possible.
