At this midway point of Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, we wanted to share a few of our thoughts and links that celebrate the use of te reo, everyday and in many ways.
Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori (the Māori Language Moment) has a 2040 vision of 1million te reo speakers, and invited all of us to celebrate what makes Aotearoa unique as this week kicked off.
Visit Tuku.reomaori.co.nz to see ideas or search #māorilanguagemoment if you haven’t already to see the various ways people are increasing awareness and embracing the use of te reo this week across our motu (nation).
The BTW team attended the New Plymouth Keynote Speaker Event Tuesday lunchtime to whakarongo to the kōrero of 3 local language champions, and celebrate the language by sharing te reo resources and continuing to include kīanga (phases) in our internal communications.
Pānui (read), kōrero (speak), ako (learn) or waiata (sing). Let us know what you’ve been doing this week to celebrate Te Reo Māori.
BTW – whakahī (proud) to tautoko (support) #MāoriLanguageWeek
