Welcome to Maori Language Week

Maori Language Week starts today – the 14th September 2020.

This year’s week was organised to start on September 14th for a special reason. This was the day in 1972 when the petition for Te Reo Maori was presenting to parliament.

Due to Covid-19 things will look a little different this year. This week New Zealanders will set a record this Maori Language Week. So far more than 200,000 people have already signed up to celebrate te reo as part of the country’s first virtual Maori Language Moment.

This online push is part of the Maori Language Commission’s plan to get one million people speaking, singing and celebrating te reo at the same time.

A Maori language hub – www.reomaori.co.nz – was also launched this week. At its heart is an online events calendar where people can upload and download events happening online, on land and overseas.
