For the third year running - Te Roopū Māori o SkyCity (Māori staff group) have run some activations to support Te Wiki i Te Reo Māori.

The SkyCity group spans across all our sites within Aotearoa and can also include Australia. We have around 4,500 staff across the group.

Understandably things are a bit tough with Covid, but we as a group were determined to run some fun and engaging events to engage and educate our people.

We started with some simple online 30 minute teams or zoom, levelling up with a number of interesting events as detailed below;

1) Maori Language Moment with TRMOS - 14.09.21

2) Kani kani a Papatūānuku with Taane Mete - 15.09.21

3) Hauora Māori with Dr Hinemoa Elder - 15.09.21

4) Learn basic mihi & karakia kai with TRMOS - 16.09.21

5) Fun Māori Quiz with TRMOS - 17.09.21

Added to this we ran a fun and creative tik tok, video or pic challenge for staff and their whanau called "Karawhiua" from Mon 13.09 to Mon 20.09.

We gave away prizes at every event and had a diverse selection of both our Māori and non-Māori colleagues and friends attending and contributing through out the week.

2021 has been a challenging year for all businesses and whanau, and SkyCity is no different. However, we will still persevere - kia kaha, kia mai, kia manawanui!
