Ngā Tohu Reo Māori 2016 - Māori Language Awards

PĀNUI PĀPĀHO | NEWS RELEASE 27 October | Whiringa-ā-nuku 2016

Ka whakanuia ngā toa reo Māori ki ngā tohu o te motu

Kua pānuitia ngā whiringa toa mō ngā wāhanga whakataetae 13 o Ngā Tohu Reo Māori o te motu a Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.

E toru tekau mā waru ngā kaiwhakataetae whiringa toa mai i ngā kaiwhakauru 88, ko te tokomaha rawa tēnei mai anō i te tīmatanga o ngā tohu i te tau 2004. Ko te hui whakahōnore i tēnei tau ka taurimahia e Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori rāua ko Te Reo o Taranaki ka tū ki Ngāmotu ā te 11 o Whiringa-ā-rangi.

E ai ki te Tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori a Ngahiwi Apanui kua eke taumata anō ngā kaiwhakauru mō te hiranga me te kounga o te reo Māori. “Ia tau ka uaua ake te whakataetae nei ko wai ka whakahuatia hei toa mō te reo Māori,” e ai ki tāna. O ngā kaiwhakataetae whiringa toa i tēnei tau, he tokomaha tonu ngā toa o mua, i uru hoki ki ngā wāhanga whakataetae neke atu i te kotahi, kua whakawhanake ake hoki i ngā mahi o mua kia eke ai te reo ki tētahi taumata noa atu. “He kaupapa nui ngā tohu nei ki te maramataka mō te reo Māori, i tua atu i te whakanui i ngā kaupapa mahi o te tau, he wāhi hoki ki te whakanui i te hunga e roa ana tā rātou ū ki te whakarauora i te reo Māori.”

Ko ngā wāhanga whakataetae i tēnei tau ko ngā tohu mō ngā tāngata takitahi, mō ngā rōpū anō hoki, ki roto i ngā mahi toi me ngā mahi whakangahau, ngā whare mātauranga, te pakihi, ngā tāngata me ngā kaipāho reo irirangi me te whakaata irirangi. Kua kore kē he kaiwhakauru mai mō te tohu hākinakina.



Māori language champions to be celebrated at national awards

Finalists in 13 contestable categories of the Māori Language Commission’s annual Ngā Tohu Reo Māori, the National Māori Language Awards, have been announced.

Thirty eight finalists have been selected from more than 88 entries, the highest number received since the awards began in 2004. This year’s ceremony to be hosted by the Commission and Te Reo o Taranaki, will be held in New Plymouth on 11 November.

Māori Language Commission Chief Executive Ngahiwi Apanui says the entries have set a new benchmark for innovation and excellence in te reo Māori. “Each year the competition to be named a champion of te reo Māori gets tougher,” he says. This year’s finalists, many of whom have been past winners, and are finalists in more than one category, have built on previous experience to take te reo to new heights. “The awards are an important event in the Māori language calendar and as well as recognising initiatives and activities which took place during the year, are also an opportunity to acknowledge long-term commitment by individuals and groups to Māori language revitalisation.”

Categories this year include awards for individuals and groups, including arts and entertainment, educational institutions, businesses, radio and television broadcasters and individuals. No entries were received for the sports award.Toronga pāpāho
