Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori. 14 - 20 September/Māhuru

Today marks the beginning of Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2020 | Māori Language Week 2020.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2020 from Monday runs from 14 September to Sunday 20 September.  

This year’s theme is 'Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ meaning ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong'.

On 14 September 1972, 30 thousand signatures were presented to Parliament, asking for te reo Māori to be taught in schools. 

In recognition of this significant milestone, Aotearoa will be celebrating Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori | The Māori Language Moment at 12pm today with the goal of having 1 million people speaking, singing and celebrating te reo Māori at the same time!
