Māori Language Week kicked off with a parade through the middle of Wellington.
The parade of sixteen floats and thousands of participants wound its way through the CBD from the train station to Te Papa around lunch-time.
Actor Julian Dennison from Hunt for the Wilderpeople and All Black Nehe Milner-Skudder were among those who joined in to promote the use of Māori language. Around 8000 people enjoyed the parade.
The theme for this year is ākina te reo – behind you all the way – which is about using te reo Māori to support people, to inspire and to cheer on.
Māori Language Week is a chance for people to try learning and using the language.

  1. It is great when people get to learn about Te Reo Maori and it is also great that if every one in all different country’s learnt it. Every Te Reo Maori language week we could talk it and teach children or parents that don ‘t know.
