Te Matatini has just named the recipient of the Mobil Oil Te Reo Excellence Trophy nearly two weeks after the national kapa haka festival was held in Christchurch.

Mōtai Tangata Rau has been named the winner of the coveted Te Reo trophy that recognises excellence in written and performed Māori language at the nationals.

The award was inadvertently missed out in the prize giving ceremony that was held at the festival in late March.

A presentation of the award will be held in Te Awamutu today.
