Te Wiki o Te Reo Maori

Te Wiki 2013 is now ended and there were a number of events held over not one, but two weeks (the official Māori Language Week was during the semester break).

Māori Centre ran a number of events for students and staff during the week.

What is really taking off at this University, is the number of departments and divisions that are running their own Māori Language Week programmes.  This has included holding 2 or 3 hour workshops on the Treaty of Waitangi, and workshops for staff on basic language pronunciation.  At least one services division ran Māori Language MONTH!

Ask around for ideas, engage with others in your work area, or talk to the Associate Deans Māori, the departmental kaiāwhina.... or contact the Office of Māori Development.

Why wait until July next year, or limit your learning to one week of the year?  Start now.
