Take part

We invite all of Aotearoa and further to stop what they’re doing and celebrate te reo Māori at 12pm, on 14 September. You can kōrero (speak), waiata (sing), pānui (read) and more - Whatever you do, do it in te reo Māori. 


This marks the very moment  the Māori Language Petition was presented to Parliament in 1972, on the first Māori Language Day. Three years later, it became what we now know as Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. 


Join us and take a moment for te reo Māori as we acknowledge the past, celebrate the present, and prepare for the future.
