About Te Wiki o te Reo Māori
Ko Arohatia te Reo te kupu kua whakarewahia hei tāhuhu mō Te Wiki o te Reo Māori i te reo. Ko te wawata, kia kitea e tēnā, e tēnā he mahi, he ara e whakaatu ai ia i tōna aroha ki te reo. Ko te wawata, kia kitea e tēnā, e tēnā he mahi, he ara e whakaatu ai ia i tōna aroha ki te reo. Ahakoa ko wai, ahakoa nō whea, ahakoa kei whea e noho ana, e mahi ana, tēnei Te Taura Whiri te whakatenatena nei i te motu whānui kia hāpai ake i te kaupapa nei. Kimihia he kaupapa hei poipoi, hei whakanui, hei kōrero i te reo, kia eke ai te kōrero, āe mārika, e arohatia ana tō tātou reo Māori.
Arohatia te Reo is the theme for Māori Language Week 2012. Arohatia te Reo, means to cherish the language and this year it is intended to encourage all people to demonstrate their love and regard for the language. No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you do, we encourage the whole nation to find a way to express how and in what ways they use, honour, speak and thereby show their love for the language.
Te Taurawhiri i te Reo Māori works with the Human Rights Commission works and Te Puni Kokiri to promote the week as an opportunity for all New Zealanders to celebrate Te Reo Māori and to Give it a Go to learn and use more Māori phrases in everyday life. Te Reo Māori is celebrated as a unique feature of our identity as New Zealanders, something that brings us together and celebrates our heritage.
