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

Kua pānuitia i te rā nei ngā whiringa toa o te tekau mā rima o Ngā Tohu Reo Māori a Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.

E toru tekau mā ono ngā kaiwhakataetae whiringa toa mai i ngā kaiwhakauru 150 koni atu – ko te tokomaha rawa tēnei mai anō i te tīmatanga o ngā tohu i te tau 2004. Ko te hui whakahōnore ka taurimahia e Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori i tēnei tau, ka tū ki Te Papa ā te 23 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. “He kaupapa nui ngā tohu nei ki te maramataka mō te reo Māori; i tua atu i te whakanui i ngā kaupapa i kawea i te tau, he wāhi hoki ki te whakanui i te hunga e roa ana tō rātou ū ki te whakarauora i te reo Māori.”

Ko te tāhū o te tau nei, ko ‘Kia kaha te Reo Māori’. Tītiro ki ēnei kaiwhiringa – āe, e kaha ana’!

Ko ngā karangatanga whakataetae i tēnei tau, ko ngā tohu mō ngā tāngata takitahi, mō ngā rōpū anō hoki, i roto i ngā mahi toi me ngā mahi whakangahau, ngā whare mātauranga, te ao pakihi, tae atu ki ngā tāngata me te mahi pāpāho. Māori language champions to be celebrated at national awards


Finalists in the Māori Language Commission’s 15th Ngā Tohu Reo Māori, the National Māori Language Awards, have been announced.

36 finalists have been selected from more than 150 nominations, the highest number received since the awards began in 2004. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by the Commission and will be held at Te Papa on 23 November.


Māori Language Commission Chief Executive Ngahiwi Apanui says 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.

“This year’s theme was ‘Kia kaha te reo Māori’: ‘May the Māori language be strong’. These finalists show that yes, it is strong!”.

Categories this year include awards for individuals and groups, including arts and entertainment, education, business, media and broadcasting.
