New Zealand (Aotearoa) – Dates for 2019 Māori Language Week are September 9-15 (9-15 Mahuru). This is one of Planeta.com’s favorite celebrations in the world, one that stands out as a model of inclusive and clever communication that brings people together. We see this as a way of expanding our knowledge and appreciation of the people down underer and in particular, 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.
