Whakanuia te wiki o te reo Māori – Celebrate Māori Language Week
Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou katoa. Greetings to you all.
Te wiki o te reo Māori takes place this year between 11 and 17 September. Kia ora te reo Māori is the theme for this year’s Māori Language Week. The theme was chosen to celebrate New Zealand’s indigenous greeting, and also as the words ‘Kia Ora’ are an exact description of the intent of the new partnerships for te reo Māori revitalisation between the Crown and Māori under the new Māori Language Act 2016.
Te wiki o te reo Māori provides an opportunity to celebrate and learn te reo Māori, helping to secure its future as a living, dynamic, and rich language.
