Activist group Ngā Tamatoa emerged in the early 1970s to demand greater recognition for Māori issues and interests. Among these was that the Māori language should be taught in schools. A 30,000-signature petition supporting this aim was presented to Parliament in 1972 by Ngā Tamatoa member Hana Jackson.
