Today is Māori Language Day and commemorates the presentation of the 1972 Māori language petition to parliament.

The theme for 2020’s Māori Language week is Kia Kaha te Reo Māori. Kia kaha | Be Strong.

Mahuru Māori is an initiative that began in 2017 to promote the use of te reo Māori throughout the month of September. Read about how you can celebrate Māori Language week here.
