Whakanuia te Wiki o te Reo Māori 150 150 admin

Whakanuia te Wiki o te Reo Māori

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 9 and 15 September.

Kia Kaha te reo Māori is the theme for this year’s Māori Language Week.

‘Kia Kaha’ is a well known phrase in New Zealand, meaning ‘be strong’. We often talk 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’.

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.

Whakanuia te wiki o te reo Māori – Celebrate Māori Language Week

Ngā mihi nui ki a koutou katoa….
