Māori Language Week (NZ)

Māori Language Week (NZ)

Every year since 1975, Aotearoa (New Zealand) has celebrated Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, or Māori Language Week, an occasion that brings te reo Māori (the Māori language) into the spotlight. Held every third week of September, this government-sponsored initiative is part of a bigger movement to rejuvenate the language. It’s packed with events that honour the country’s unique heritage and encourage folks to sprinkle a bit more Māori into their lives.


Acknowledging others is so important. A greeting like ‘Kia Ora’ goes beyond mere pleasantries. It’s a deep recognition of a person’s essence, their roots, and their lineage. And though the journey to revitalising the Māori language has been a long one, progress is happening. Today, te reo Māori is experiencing a revival, with more speakers, dedicated Māori-language schools, radio stations, and a television channel all contributing to its resurgence. How will you join in?
