7 Huitanguru 2019

E rere atu ana te karanga a Te Kaunihera o Pōneke, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori me ngā pakihi rima tekau o Pōneke kia kōrero te hapori i te reo Māori i tēnei marama ki te manawa o te tāone.

Ka tū Te Matatini ki Poneke ā te 21 - 24 o tēnei marama, nā reira he wā tika tēnei ki te whakanui i tō tātou ahurea ake mā te whakamahi i te reo Māori, te kī a te Koromatua o Pōneke, a Justin Lester.

“Kei te pīrangi mātou kia pōhiritia ngā kapa whā tekau mā ono me ā rātou kaitautoko mā te ako me te whakamahi i te reo Māori māmā noa iho.

“Ina ka kī atu koe kia ora, mōrena, haere mai rānei kei te whakaatu koe i te poho kererūtanga mō tō tātou Aotearoatanga.”

He kaupapa mahi-tahi a Kia Kaha te reo Māori nā Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori me te Kaunihera o Pōneke e tautoko ana i te kaupapa here a te Kaunihera arā Te Tauihu. He whakaaetanga tēnei i te mana o te reo Māori hei reo ōkawa o Aotearoa, ā, ko tōna whāinga e nui ake ai te kitenga me te whakamahinga o te reo Māori i te tāone matua o Aotearoa. Ko WREDA (The Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency) anō hoki tētahi o ngā kaitautoko i te kaupapa nei.

I puta te whakahau a te Kaunihera rāua tahi ko WREDA ki ngā pakihi kia hono mai ki tēnei kaupapa.

Ko ngā pakihi e whai wāhi mai ana ka whakapiri i te tohu “Kia kaha te reo Māori” ki ngā matapihi, ki te paepae utu rānei me ētahi kāri rerenga kupu hei āwhina i ngā kaimahi me ngā kiritaki ki te ako i ētahi kupu māmā. Ka wātea te kāri rerenga kupu hei tango, hei ta anō hoki ki tetaurawhiri.govt.nz.



Katoa ngā puna kaukau, ngā whare pukapuka tae atu ki te Whare Taonga Pahi Taura (Cable Car Museum), Te Whare Ātea (Space Place), Te Whare Taonga o Pōneke me te Whare Iti o te Tiriti o Nairn e whai wāhi mai ana ki tēnei kaupapa.

E kī ana te tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri a Ngahiwi Apanui e poho kereru ana a Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori ki te tū i te taha o te Kaunihera ki te whakatairanga i te reo Māori.

“Ehara i te mea me Māori te tangata ki te kōrero Māori. E whakatenatena ana mātou i ngā iwi katoa ahakoa ko wai ki te korero tahi i te reo Māori i tō mātou taha.”

Ko tō tātou ahurea Māori i rerekē ake ai a Aotearoa i ērā atu whenua kōrero Pākehā o te ao. E here ana mātou, te tāone matua ki te whakatairanga i te reo Maori i tā tātou haerenga kia noho ake hei tāone reo rua ā te tau 2040.

Te reo Māori embrace for Te Matatini
7 February 2019

Wellingtonians will be encouraged to give te reo Māori a go this month with a new Wellington City Council campaign supported by Te Taura Whiri i te reo Māori and more than 50 businesses in the central city.

Wellington hosts Te Matatini, the national kapa haka festival, from 21-24 February, meaning this month is a perfect time to celebrate our unique culture and give it a go, Wellington Mayor Justin Lester says.

“We want everyone in Wellington to welcome the 46 kapa haka teams and their supporters and to take the opportunity to learn some simple te reo Māori.

“When you say kia ora, mōrena, or haere mai you are showing pride in our distinctive New Zealand culture and heritage.

“As the capital city we are committed to promoting te reo in our journey towards becoming bilingual by 2040.”

The Kia Kaha te reo Māori campaign is a partnership with Te Taura Whiri and supports the Council’s Te Tauihu policy, which recognise the status of te reo Māori as an official language of New Zealand and aims to increase its use and visibility in the capital city. It is also supported by the Wellington Regional Economic Development Agency.

The City Council and WREDA have encouraged businesses in the central city to join the campaign.

Participating hotels, cafes and retailers will have a “Kia kaha te reo Māori” sticker in shop window or at payment counters and phrase cards available to assist staff and patrons to learn simple te reo Māori words. The phrase card will be available to download and print at tetaurawhiri.govt.nz

All Council pools and libraries, along with the Cable Car Museum, Space Place
Wellington Museum and Nairn St Cottage will be participating in the campaign.

Bright and colourful “Piki mai ki Pōneke” street flags to welcome Te Matatini visitors to Wellington and posters promoting the campaign will also be installed around the city from 4 February.

Te Taura Whiri chief executive Ngahiwi Apanui says the language commission is proud to be partnering with Wellington City Council to promote te reo Māori.

“You don’t have to be Māori to be speak te reo. We encourage everyone to give te reo a go: ahakoa iti, akona, kōrerotia – learn a little, use a little.

“Our Māori culture and heritage is what makes New Zealand stand apart from other English speaking countries.”

Look out for the Kia Kaha te reo Māori stickers and phrase cards at:
• Karaka bar and cafe
