Wā ō mua | Past moments

We are on a mission to celebrate te reo Māori all year round - not just during Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. Our moments are an open invitation to Aotearoa to join the movement and be a part of history. Honour the past, celebrate New Zealand’s language and prepare for our future. Together.
