Whakanuia Te Wiki o te Reo Māori : Celebrate Māori Language Week
11 - 17 September 2017 : 11 - 17 o Mahuru 2017
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 highlights the opportunity for New Zealanders to 'Give it a go'- to learn and use more Māori phrases in everyday life.
Kia ora te reo Māori is the theme for 2017 which 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.
The new act sets up Te Mātāwai to lead revitalisation among Māori. The Māori Language Commission will focus its attention on the public sector and wider New Zealand. Together we will ensure that the Māori language has ‘ora’ – life and vitality.
