The intergenerational transmission of all Pacific languages in Aotearoa NZ is now becoming seriously at risk due to the continuing lack of recognition, status and prestige in the Civic Domain which is largely controlled by (successive) governments and their agencies. In this paper we update our current state 2010 Alternative (6) article on the overview of Pacific languages in Aotearoa NZ and our 2013 Census analysis. We argue now that in spite of many important initiatives by Pacific communities since 2010 that because of this lack of status in the Civic Domain, Pacific youth and many communities continue to see our languages as the languages of older generations, suitable mainly for home and church and largely unsuited for work, education and the future.
