Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2008 - Māori Language Week

Māori Language Week will be celebrated this year 21 - 27  July 2008. 


Originally the week occurred around the time of Māori Language Day (September 14). It was moved to its current time to fit in with the school year.

Te Wiki provides a time for special events to celebrate and promote the Māori language. More recently, awards have been given to groups that make a particularly noteworthy contribution at this time.

The theme for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2008 - Māori Language Week is Te Reo i te Kāinga - Māori language in the home. Watch out for the special 'Kōrero Māori' booklet later this year that will support you to speak Māori at home.
