Māori Language Week Awards - Ngā Tohu Wiki Reo Māori

Māori Language Week Awards 2006 In 2004 Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori – the Māori Language Commission – began the Māori Language Awards as a way of celebrating Māori Language Week.

The Awards recognise the efforts of community organisations, schools, businesses, the media and government bodies to promote and use reo Māori during Māori Language Week.

Each year the awards look at the ways groups within these categories have used the language during the week. The award winners are announced on Māori Language Day (September 14).

As Māori Language Week draws near (usually around the end of July) the theme and categories will be announced here.

The archived webcast of the Awards ceremony can be viewed here.

You do need Windows Media Player - Version 7 and above - to be able to view the webcast. Update information is available here
