We are celebrating Te Wiki o te Reo Maori this week.
The Theme is ‘Kia kaha te reo Maori.’
‘Kia kaha’ is well understood in New Zealand English with its meaning of ‘be strong’. We often talk about languages as if they are people – talking about language health, strength and revitalisation. So when we say ‘Kia kaha te reo Maori’ we’re saying - ‘Let’s make the Maori language strong.
We can all practise using more Te Reo this week and in our lives.
