WelCom September 2022
Te Wiki o te Reo Māori has been celebrated in Aotearoa since 1975. In 2022 Māori Language Week takes place 12 to 18 Mahuru, September. This 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. The 50th anniversary of the presentation of the Māori language petition and Māori Language Day will be commemorated as a major anniversary this year. This year also marks 35 years since the Māori Language Act saw te reo become an official language and the Māori Language Commission, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, was established.
