Te wiki o Te Reo Māori

September 13 - September 19

Māori Language Week has been celebrated each year from 1975. September 14 and commemorates the presentation of the 1972 Māori language petition to parliament.

‘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’.

Birth isn’t something we suffer, but
something we actively do, and exalt in!
