Arohatia te Reo means to cherish the language and this year it is intended to encourage all people to demonstrate their love and regard for the language.
No matter who you are, where you come from, or what you do, the whole nation is encouraged to find a way to express how and in what ways they use, honour, speak and thereby show their love for the language.
Te Wiki o te Reo Māori will be launched with an event at Te Awa, The Base in Hamilton on Monday, 23 July, at 8.30am.
All Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori resources for 2012 will be available to download online in early June. The Māori Language Awards open on 1June 2012. Start thinking now what your organisation can do not only to celebrate Māori Language Week but also to enter the awards. To get some ideas visit Korero Māori online.
