Te whakanui i a Matariki
Celebrating Matariki 

 

Korero Maori - kia kaha ake! 
 

Taketake ake no Aotearoa te reo Maori, he wahanga motuhake no te ahurea o Aotearoa, a, kei te tino piki haere hoki te korerotia o te reo Maori i tenei wa.

I whakamanahia te reo Maori hei reo whaimana mo Aotearoa i te tau 1987, a, i tenei wa e tino rangona ana i roto i nga mihimihi, i nga huihuinga kawanatanga me te rangai matauranga.

Kua timata ke te uruuru haere o nga kupu Maori ki nga ahuatanga o to tatou korero Pakeha - kaore pea koe i te mohio – e whakamahia ana e tatou etahi kupu Maori ia ra, ia ra.

Ko Matariki tetahi wa totika hei huringa ma tatou ki te whakawhanui i to tatou mohio ki te reo Maori.


 

Anei etahi hononga hei awhina i a koe kia timata, kia piki ake ranei o pukenga: 
 

Speak Maori - give it a go! 
 

Reo Maori is an intrinsic part of the culture of Aotearoa New Zealand and is currently experiencing a resurgence in usage.

Maori was recognised as an official language in 1987 and is becoming increasingly common in greetings, official functions and in education.

Already there are many Maori words in common use in our language and - even without always realising it - most of us use elements of reo Maori every day.

Matariki is the ideal time for us to do something more to further our knowledge of reo Maori.
