Te Wiki o te Reo Māori – Māori Language Week is being celebrated from 11 – 17 September. Te Wiki o te Reo Māori is an annual campaign led by Te Taura Whiri promoting te reo as New Zealand’s language and a language for all New Zealanders. Every year we encourage whānau from across Aotearoa, New Zealand, including organisations, schools, workplaces and homes, to give te reo Māori a go.
The National Liturgy Office has prepared resources to support the use of te reo Māori in Miha – Mass. These can be accessed here.
Archdiocese of Wellington staff will be meeting each day to kōrero and learn from each other, finishing with prayer in te reo Māori.
Māori Language Week has been celebrated in Aotearoa since 1975. This special week is an opportunity for the concentrated celebration and promotion of te reo Māori, helping to secure its future as a living, dynamic, and rich language.
