Te Wiki o te Reo Maori

This week is te Wiki o te Reo Māori (Māori Language week) and we are trying to introduce te Reo Māori into our day! The theme for Māori Language week 2015 is ‘Whangaia te Reo’, which means ‘Nurture the language’. During the week we will be promoting some of our Get Ready Get Thru resources in te Reo through Twitter and Facebook so make sure you visit us to learn more!

Te Wiki o te Reo Maori

This picture engages the iconic image of Whina Cooper and her mokopuna from the 1975 land march as they set off on the journey of a lifetime, now widely regarded as the flashpoint for Maori cultural reclaimation. The Northern matriarch's protest was deliberately staged to coincide with the first Maori Language Day (later to become Maori Language Week). For Maori, land, whenua, papatuanukui and language (reo) are inextricably linked. Alienation of one is an alienation of the other. This image is a reminder of our past and the long journey we have taken. it also reflects the importance of parents and caregivers in nurturing the next generation.
