I am so glad to have Maori language week! It's a great way to express the Maori culture, and really shows us how important this culture is.

I am practicing using the language

The growing use of te Reo Maori throughout Aotearoa is so, so welcome. Hard fought for. Nearly lost, but now becoming embedded again in daily life. I have huge respect for our kuia and kaumātua who never gave up and who have brought us to this place. https://www. rnz. co. nz/news/te-manu-korihi/474655/remembering-the-maori-language-petition-and-the-revival-of-te-reo-maori

Kei te hanga maramataka ahau ki te reo Māori me ōku hoa. :)

I am practicing bigger numbers in Māori to expand my knowledge.

I took a class on basic Māori phrases that I could use while talking with my family during dinner and lunch.

We will hold a hybrid in-person / online event for Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori, starting at 11. 45, listening to Waiata Anthems until noon when we do karakia, and then sing three waiata of our own.

Learning Te Reo in various ways

Just had few Māori dinners like boil up an hangis with whanau to help broaden the whanaus mind for Māori wisdom an culture

As Convener of a Book Group I will greet the members in Maori at the commencement of our meeting today.

I celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori by being open to new learning. By being a voice against 'FB post comment' casual and overt racism. By using Reo as a daily habit with my children. By telling everyone that every week is Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. By seeing a future where there isn't such resistance from the dinosaurs to Te Reo being a seamless part of our shared national culture.

Use te reo greetings as much as possible.

Learn our culture the reo Maori Know the the love of our ansesters

This is an audio recording of Maia Martin Elwell (aged 9) and myself Sarah Hoskyns (music therapist and VUW lecturer) singing and playing Tai Aroha. I have been learning and sharing waiata with Maia when I baby sit over the years and we sing them when she is in the bath. We practised it and recorded it last night as Maia is a school today. I challenged my Master of Music therapy teaching group at Victoria University to learn and share a new waiata this week, and I thought I had better do so too. Maia is a lovely tuakana! Thank you! This is such great mahi.

I am learning more Māori numbers to use in every day life.

My 3 daughters and I have decided to venture into a journey of joining up with a beginner te reo class and all learn Te reo Maori together

We put down a huge hangi for our kura putea.

I'm so glad to found my voice and do amazing connections with this way to do my pepeha, as long as I'm Brazilian. And I'm happy to share with my friends this taonga. 2022 it is my fourth time celebrating Reo Māori and I feel more confident to write, speak and translate something about mātauranga to Brazilian Portuguese. Kia kaha Te Reo Māori!

I am committed to using kupu everyday with my tamariki, starting our day off with karakia timatanga and ending our day with karakia whakamutunga
