The Te Aute College played an important role in this cultural revitalization, as it educated many Māori leaders (such as Apirana Ngata, Te Rangi Hīroa and Maui Pomare) who rose to high positions in the New Zealand political system, and could work to improve various areas for the Māori people (health, education, access to property, employment, protection of the native language and customs).
