Ko wai ngā toa reo Māori o te tau 2017?


E rua wiki noa iho kei te toe, ka kati te ara tuku ingoa ki te tino hui whakatāiri reo Māori o te tau, ki Ngā Tohu Reo Māori 2017.

Ka tū ki Te Whanganui-a-Tara, ki tētahi hākari i te pō o te 24 o Whiringa-ā-rangi. Koia nei ētahi o ngā karangatanga e whakanuia ana: Takitahi, Mahi Toi me te Whakangahau, Mātauranga, Pakihi, Pāpāhotanga, Kāwanatanga, me te Rangatahi. Ā, kei wareware ngā tohu tiketike, a Te Tohu Huia te Reo me Te Tohu Oranga Angitu.

Ka kōwhiria ngā toa o roto i ngā mea ka whakaingoatia i runga anō i te āhua o tā rātou whakahauora ake i te reo Māori.

E mea ana te Tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, a Ngahiwi Apanui, kua kitea ake i Te Wiki o te Reo Māori te whānui me te hōhonu o te tautoko mai a mātinitini mā, a matahuhua mā i te reo Māori.

“Me whakamānawa ka tika ō tātou Toa o te Reo Māori. Kaua e whakamā! Ki te mōhio koe ki tētahi tangata, rōpū, whakahaere rānei e tika ana kia whakanuia, tēnā tukua mai tōna ingoa me ngā kōrero mōna, mā runga i tā mātou pae tukutuku.”

Who will be the 2017 Māori Language Champions?

Just two weeks are left for nominations to the prestige Māori language event of the year: the 2017 Māori Language Awards.

The Awards will be held in Wellington at a gala dinner on 24 November. Categories include Individual, Arts/Entertainment, Education, Business, Broadcasting/Media, Government and Youth. There are also Supreme and Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Judging will be based on the way in which nominees have contributed to revitalisation of te reo Māori.

The Maori Language Commission Chief Executive Ngahiwi Apanui says Māori Language Week has shown the breadth and depth of support for te reo Māori from people of all backgrounds.

“Our Māori Language Champions should be celebrated. Kaua e whakamā – don’t hesitate! If you know of someone or an organisation that deserves recognition, nominate now on our website”.
