Te Wiki o te reo Māori ki Puke ArikiMāori Language Week at Puke Ariki
Māori Language week has been celebrated each year from 1975 and the chosen theme for 2020 was 'Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’.
‘Kia Kaha’ is well understood in New Zealand English with its meaning of ‘be strong’. We often talk about languages as if they are people – talking about language health, strength and revitalisation. So when we say ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ we’re saying ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong'.
Throughout the week we invited you to:
- discover quizzes that explore and celebrate Te Reo Māori
- enjoy themed Crackerjacks story sessions (suitable for pre-schoolers)
- browse our booklist
