Whakanuia Te Wiki o te Reo Māori

Celebrate Māori Language Week

Mahuru : September 

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori - Māori Language Week is an annual celebration of Te Reo Māori promoted by the Māori Language Commission working with the Human Rights Commission and Te Puni Kokiri.

The week, usually held in September,  highlights the opportunity for New Zealanders to 'Give it a go'- to learn and use more Māori phrases in everyday life.

Kia Kaha te Reo Māori.

‘Kia kaha’ is well understood in New Zealand English with its meaning of ‘be strong’. We often talk about languages as if they are people – talking about language health, strength and revitalisation. So when we say "Kia kaha te reo Māori" we’re saying - "Let’s make the Māori language strong".
