New Zealand – Māori Language Week, te wiki o te reo Māori, is a government-sponsored initiative promoting the use of Māori language, one of the three official national languages of the country (Māori, English and New Zealand Sign Language). The week is part of the broader Māori language revival and raises public awareness for Māori language revitalization, learning and public usage.
Dates for the 2018 Māori Language Week are September 10-16 with the theme ‘Kia Kaha Te Reo Māori.’
September 14 is Māori Language Day, a reminder of the day 1972 when the petition for te reo Māori was suspended in the parliament.
