Embracing Te Reo Māori During Māori Language Week

Kia Ora te Whānau! It's Māori Language Week ,

It's that time of the year again when we come together to celebrate the richness of Te Reo Māori during Māori Language Week.

Te Reo Māori is not just a language; it's a taonga (treasure) that connects us to the rich history and traditions of Aotearoa. It's a vibrant language that deserves our love and respect.

This week, let's make a commitment to:

Learn something new: Challenge yourself to learn a new Māori word or phrase every day. Share your favorites in the comments!

Share stories: Share your personal experiences with Te Reo Māori. How has it enriched your life?

Family time: Spend quality time with your loved ones, engaging in Māori-themed activities.

‍If you have a young pēpi, listen and sing along to this beautiful new lullaby ‘‘I te Tōnga o te Rā’ from Te Hiringa Hauora" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3Z3SoSA8K8

For tamariki, sing along to "Punua Mako (Baby Shark) by Pukana" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mnzFrSuFwUw

Dance and sing along to young talent, Atareta & Te Haakura! We love their smash song Pakipaki Mai https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5qc1dP8Nws
