Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori
Ngā ingoa Māori
 
E whakatenatenahia ngā tāngata o Aotearoa kia ākona te reo Māori!

E whakatenatena ana te Kaihautū Whakawhanaunga-ā-Iwi a Kahurangi Susan Devoy i ngā tāngata o Aotearoa kia kawea te mānuka ki te ako i te reo Māori i te wā o Te Wiki o te Reo Māori i tēnei tau.

“Ko te reo Māori te taonga o te motu. Me whakaaro katoa ngā tāngata o Aotearoa ki te ako i te reo Māori kia ora haere tonu ai, “te kī a Kahurangi Susan. Ko tētahi wāhanga o taku mahi, e kaingākau ana au ki te tautoko i te reo Māori, hei ākonga, hei tangata nō Aotearoa. He whai wāhitanga nui Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori kia whakamātauhia te reo; i te kāinga, i te kura, i te mahi rānei.”

E āhukahuka anō a Kahurangi Susan i ngā whakahaerenga maha e whakatairanga ana i te reo i tēnei wiki, otirā me te roanga atu o tēnei tau.

Ko te kaupapa o tēnei tau ko Ngā ingoa Māori, arā kia aro ki te whakahua tika i ngā ingoa me ngā wāhi puta noa i Aotearoa. Ka whakarewahia Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori i Britomart, Tāmaki Makaurau. Ko Waka Kotahi kei te whakahaere, ā, kei te tohatoha rauemi ā mātau kaitūao mai i te 6.30 i te ata, e tūtakitaki ana i te hunga eke tereina moata tonu i te ata.

Ngā mea hei mahi māu hei hāpai i te reo Māori:

Kōrerohia! Ko te mea nui māu kia whakamātauhia – mihi atu ki tō hoa noho tata, ina whakautu koe i tō waea, tuku īmēra rānei

Whakamahia te reo Māori ki roto i ō pānui, whakaputanga, whārangi pāpāho pāpori, ipurangiroto me ngā paetukutuku

Whakatenatenahia kia whakamahia ngā mihi o ia rā, i ngā rā 365 o te tau

Rapua te hītori o ngā ingoa wāhi i tō rohe me ngā ingoa o te tangata.

Ka kitea anō ngā mōhiohio mō ngā kaupapa me ngā rauemi o Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori:

Māori Language Week
Ngā ingoa Māori – Māori names
1 July 2013 to 7 July 2013

 
New Zealanders Urged to Take Up Te Reo Challenge!

Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy urges New Zealanders to take up the challenge to learn te reo Māori during this year’s Māori Language Week.

“Te reo Māori is our national taonga. All New Zealanders should think about learning and using te reo Māori to make sure it continues to thrive,” says Dame Susan. “As part of my role, I’m passionate about supporting te reo Māori, both as a learner and as a New Zealander. Māori Language Week is a great opportunity to give te reo a go; at home, at school or at work.”
Dame Susan also acknowledges the many organisations promoting te reo during this week, especially those continuing to do so throughout the year.

Centred around the theme Ngā ingoa Māori – Māori names, this year’s focus is on the correct pronunciation of names and places throughout Aotearoa. Māori Language Week will be launched at Britomart Transport Centre, Tāmaki Makaurau. Hosted by the New Zealand Transport Agency, volunteers will be giving out free resources from 6.30am, catching early morning commuters.
Te Reo Māori is one of New Zealand’s official languages and protected under Article 2 of the Treaty of Waitangi. It is also protected in international human rights law. Article 13 of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples clearly sets out the rights of indigenous peoples to develop and revitalise their language.

Dame Susan invites all New Zealanders in join her and others in using and continuing to promote te Reo Māori as our country’s taonga. Kia ora! 

Here are things beginners can do to promote te reo Māori:

Speak it!  The best thing you can do is give it a go – say kia ora to your neighbour, when you answer the phone or send emails  

Use te reo Māori on your signage, publications, social media pages, intranet and websites

Encourage the use of common greetings, 365 days of the year

Find out the history behind place names in your area and people’s names.

the Commission will launch its UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples poster in Wellington on Wednesday 3 July to promote and encourage discussion on the relevance and importance of the Declaration.
