Te Wiki o te reo Maori 2021

Māori Language Week 13-19 September

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori - Māori Language Week is the annual campaign led by the Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori (The Māori Language Commission) to get more New Zealanders speaking, hearing, and experiencing te reo Māori.

Last year New Zealanders created the biggest te reo event in history as one fifth of our entire population, more than 1 million of us, stopped and celebrated te reo as part of our Māori Language Moment. Nurtured at Home joined this event by learning how to introduce ourselves, and we’ll be doing this again!

Here’s how you can introduce yourself in te reo Māori:

Ko _________________ tōku ingoa

My name is . . .

Nō ________________________ ōku tīpuna

My ancestors come from . . .

Kei te noho au ki _____________________

I live in . . .
