New Zealand (Aotearoa) – 2019’s Māori Language Week (September 9-15 or 9-15 Mahuru) has concluded.
Nā tō rourou, nā taku rourou i tutuki te kaupapa. = Let’s congratulate each other on the greatest ever Te Wiki o te Reo Māori.
Māori Language Week = Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori is one of Planeta.com’s fave celebrations in the world, one that stands out as a practical model of inclusive experiences and smart communication bringing people together on the ground and on the web across the world. We see this as a way of expanding our knowledge and appreciation of Māori culture.
Māori Language Week = Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori is a popular, government-sponsored initiative promoting the use of Māori language. The week is part of the broader Māori language revival and raises public awareness for Māori language revitalization, learning, and public usage.
- How is New Zealand celebrating the International Year of Indigenous Languages?
- What are the notable publications and events during this year’s celebration?
- What are the Māori accounts to follow and share on Facebook, Twitter, and other social web channels?
- How do other countries hold celebrations of Indigenous languages?
- What are the dates for Māori Language Week 2020?
Planeta.com uses the week to curate and retweet posts on the social web. We also use this as an opportunity to solicit corrections and suggestions for relevant pages. We touch base with friends and allies working on the ground. And we double check the dates for this year’s National Digital Forum and Nethui events.

Not enough tohu reorua – signs! That’s what people told us about our 333 bilingual signs. So we’ve added some more. If you have a sign you’d like to see in #tereo Māori, let us know.https://t.co/vcT6YCd5wR#KiaKahateReoMāori#TeWikioTeReoMāori pic.twitter.com/JX0lCUPBFD
