Te Wiki o Te Reo – Kia kaha Te Reo Māori!

Te Wiki o Te Reo – Kia kaha Te Reo Māori! Ka rawe te korero Māori!

Rātū I te poutumaro many of us had registered for the Māori Movement and took a moment for te reo Māori at the same time and day to honour the legacy of our tīpuna when they handed the Māori language petition over to Parliament.

Te Tāhū Whare recited Kingi Ihaka’s karakia for te reo Māori, observed a minute’s silence to remember those that not only put down the petition in 1972 but also those who have fought tirelessly for our language, sang ‘Whakarongo’, and closed by reciting Paraone Gloyne’s karakia for te reo Māori.

Others around the motu have come together to celebrate te reo Māori Movement. Ka uru atu he kupu me he kōrero Māori ki roto i ngā kōrerero o te rā - staff have been trying to use te reo into their daily interactions,

Te Tai Raki performed a waiata-a-ringa via zoom – ka rawe hoki

Te Tai Pūtahi Nui – recited their pepeha and practised their conversational te reo in their Ohu Ako ropu – one ropu played ika (fish) with a pūkei kāri (pack of cards) others recorded their favourite whakatauki – Pai Mārika

Te Tai Tini – have engaged in a reo quizz! kei te whakataetae mātou i a mātou anō

Business Enablement recited their pepeha – ka mau te wehi

Here is a photo of Hazel from ICT practising her reo using Kia Puawai Te Reo – ERO’s very own reo lessons created by Mereana Pawa and Tipene Watson.

Bryan Gascoigne made sure we could all add the Kia Kaha Te Reo Māori emblem to our email signatures.

Te Ihuwaka sang Ko Te Tamaiti and played daily te reo Māori quizz

Kia kaha te reo Māori
