MAORI LANGUAGE WEEK

MAORI LANGUAGE WEEK

Morena  (this means – good morning) to you all.

Every year since 1975 New Zealand has marked Māori Language Week.   This is a time for all New Zealanders to celebrate te reo Māori (the Māori language) and to use more Māori phrases in everyday life.  

This year Māori Language Week is from 21-27 July, the theme is ‘Te Kupu o te Wiki’, ‘The Word of the Week’.

 This is part of the  theme of Māori Language Week,  ‘Arohatia te Reo – cherish the language’. 

I just love our Maori Heritage and speaking the language or learning to speak = it has to be a wonderful thing to do.  🙂

Noho ora mai ra, na (this means – Look after yourself from)
