He Putanga Pāpāho

He karanga kia kaha ake te tīhau ki te reo Māori

17 o Hōngongoi 2014

E hiahia ana Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori kia muia ngā pae pāpāho pāpori e te tīhau, me te karere reo Māori mō Te Wiki o te Reo Māori mā te whakamahi i te tohumarau #tekupu.

Hei tā Pita Paraone, te Tumuaki Kairīwhi mō Te Komihana, “He waka hou ngā pae pāpāho pāpori mō te reo Māori. Ina tīhau, ina tuku karere te hunga kōrero Māori ki te reo Māori, he whakahau tēnei i ētahi atu kia pēnei anō.”

E ai ki ngā kōrero rangahau he mea tino nui te tīhau me te tuku karere ā-ipurangi nei ki tētahi reo motuhake, he ara hoki tēnei e hono atu ai te hunga kōrero Māori ki te reanga o muri mai.

Ina tīhau, ina tuku karere te tangata ki te reo Māori, tērā tonu e pērā anō ai ētahi atu.

Kia kaha ake te tuhi a te hunga ako, te hunga kōrero Māori i te pepeha, i te mihi, i te pakiwaitara, i te kōrero hou,

i te waiata, i te kōrero paki ki te reo Māori. Kua tata nei ki Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, e whakaū ana Te Taura Whiri i ētahi kupu Māori mō ngā pae pāpāho pāpori.

Tīhau – Tweet

Pae Tīhau – Twitter

Pukamata – Facebook

Paeāhua – Instagram

Te Aka – Vine

Tohumarau - Hashtag

E whakahau ana Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori kia tahuri ake ngā pakihi, ngā reo pāpāho, ngā kaiwhakangahau, ngā kaitākaro me ngā kaitōrangapū ki te kōrero Māori i ngā pae pāpāho pāpori.

Ka tīmata Te Wiki o te Reo Māori ā te Mane, te 21 o Hōngongoi. Ka whakaterea anō Te Kupu o te Wiki. Ka 50 wiki te roa e whai ana kia ākona e Aotearoa nui tonu ētahi kupu e 50.

Media release

Call for more Māori language tweets

17 July 2014

The Māori Language Commission wishes to see social media swamped with Māori language tweets and messages for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori using the hashtag #tekupu.

“Social media is a new frontier for Māori language use. Māori language speakers encourage others when they use te reo Māori as their default language for tweeting and messaging,” says Pita Paraone, Acting CE for The Commission.

“Research tells us that tweeting and messaging online in the target language is an important means of connecting with the next generation of Māori language speakers.”

When people tweet and message in Māori, others are more likely to respond in Māori too.

Learners and speakers can use more Māori online by writing pepeha, mihi, stories, updates, lyrics and jokes.

In preparation for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, the Commission confirms the following social media terms in Māori:

Tweet – Tīhau

Twitter – Pae Tīhau (the platform for tweeting)

Facebook – Pukamata

Instagram – Paeāhua

Vine – Te Aka

Hashtag - Tohumarau

The Commission is also calling on businesses, broadcasters, entertainers, sports players and politicians to join the social media conversation in te reo Māori.

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori starts Monday 21 July. Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori will launch Te Kupu o te Wiki. This is a 50 week campaign to teach 50 Māori words to all New Zealanders.
