Te Wiki o te Reo Māori - Kia Kaha te Reo Māori!

September 13, 2019 at 12:30 PM

From the NZFVC

This week, 9-15 Mahuru (September) is Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. The theme for 2019 is 'Kia Kaha te Reo Māori' - 'Let’s make the Māori language strong'.

To support the revitalisation of te reo Māori, the Clearinghouse uses te reo Māori topic terms in our library. Our Information Specialist has now created a Te Reo Māori Quick Topic Search page which highlights commonly used terms. Kia kaha - have a go!
