New date and theme for Māori Language Week 2013

14 o Mahuru 2012

He Pānui ki te Hunga Pāpāho

He rā hōu, he aronga hou mō Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2013

Ko tēnei rā te huritau 40 o te Pitihana mō Te Reo Māori, ā, i tēnei rā hoaki kua pānuitia atu e Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori ngā rā hou me te aronga hou mō Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2013.

Ko te aronga mō Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2013 ko:

Ngā Ingoa Māori

Ka noho ko Arohatia te Reo hei tāhuhu kōrero mō te Wiki, engari i raro i te aronga ‘ngā ingoa’ ka inoitia ngā iwi me ngā hapori kia whiriwhiri whakaaro mō ngā āhuatanga pēnei i te tika o te whakahuahua, te noho mārama ki te tikanga o ngā ingoa takiwā, me te whakapiki i te auau o te whakahuahua i ngā ingoa Māori.

‘He rawe ki Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori te mahi a ngā kaiwhakaatu i te huarere i te whakaata irirangi, ki te whakaputa i ngā ingoa takiwā Māori i te Wiki o Te Reo Māori,’ e ai ki te tumuaki ki a Glenis Philip-Barbara.

‘I tēnei wā hoki tēnei Te Rōpū Whakamana i Te Tiriti o Waitangi te pānui nei i ngā huringa ingoa mō ngā iwi pēnei i a Ngāti Toa, mō Tāmakimakaurau hoki. Mā te hāpai i tēnei aronga ka āhei ngā hapori ki te ako i ngā āhuatanga e pā ana ki ngā ingoa takiwā.’

‘Kei ngā ingoa takiwā te tini noa iho o ngā tātai kōrero, heke mai i ngā mātua tīpuna.’

‘Tēnei ka eke ki te 40 tau mai o te tīmatanga o te rā o te Reo Māori, ā, kāore mātou e mōhio ki tētahi wāhi mahi, ki tētahi kura, ki tētahi wāhi rānei e kore e whakahuatia ngā ingoa takiwā Māori. Ka whakamahia e tātou katoa ngā ingoa Māori, arā, ingoa takiwā, ingoa tāngata anō hoki.’

Hei te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2013 ka āhei ngā tāngata katoa o Aotearoa ki te whakapiki i tā rātou whakahua i te reo me ngā pūkenga reo Māori.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori 2013:

Rāhina 1 – Rātapu 7 o Hōngongoi
Wiki kura 9, wāhanga 2.

Media Release

New date and theme for Māori Language Week 2013

As today is the 40th anniversary of the Māori Language Petition, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori has announced the dates and theme for Māori Language Week 2013 (MLW).

The theme for Māori Language Week 2013 is:

Ngā Ingoa Māori
Māori names

Arohatia te Reo remains the tāhuhu, the base for MLW, however the ‘ingoa’ theme asks communities to consider important matters such as correct pronunciation, understanding the meaning of place-names, and using Māori names more often.

‘Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori loves how weather forecasters use Māori place-names during MLW,’ says CE Glenis Philip-Barbara.

‘The Waitangi Tribunal is also announcing dual name changes for Ngāti Toa and Tāmakimakaurau (Auckland) iwi. This theme means communities can take time to learn about them.’

‘There’s a wealth of history that comes with our Māori names.’

‘It’s 40 years since Māori Language Day began and we are unable to think of a workplace, school or location where Māori names are not used. We all use Māori place names and personal names on a daily basis.’

In MLW 2013, all New Zealanders will have the chance to improve their pronunciation and reo Māori skills.

Māori Language Week 2013:

Monday 1 – Sunday 7 July
School week 9, term 2.
