As written in this article two siblings both bilingual in Maori and English were awarded during the Manu Korero regional speech competition.  As known among Pacific Islanders is that most are bilingual usually in thier native language and english and/or frenc or other european based language but many including those who have migrated from the islands are challenged to preserve their native language.  In any case it's a great honor to have recognition for those who are proficient in any language since language a foundation for every culture.
