He whakaari pukuhohe
reo Māori hou

E kōrero ana tētahi ataata pukuhohe poto mō ngā āwangawanga o te hunga e ako ana i te reo Māori.

Kua kitea kētia te ataata e ngā tini tāngata – nui ake i te hāwhe mirona i runga ipurangi, ā, e kitea ana i runga TVNZ, Whakaata Māori hoki.

Nā te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori te ataata nei. E whakakaha ana te tōtoru pukuhohe a Frickin Dangerous Bro ki te hanga i tētahi whakaari mo te Wiki o te Reo Māori.

Ko tā te Tumuaki a Ngahiwi Apanui: ko tēnei te kaupapa matua: kia kaua e whakamā - kia kaha! 'Ahakoa iti, akona, kōrerotia i ia ra, i ia ra.

“Kaua e mataku ki te kōrero i to tātou reo ā-motu”.
New Māori language
comedy ad

A new comedy video ad addresses worries that people face when trying to use te reo Māori.

More than half a million people have already seen the ad online and it's playing on Māori TV and TVNZ as well.

The Māori Language Commission ad features renowned multicultural Kiwi comedy trio Frickin Dangerous Bro, attempting to make a television commercial for Māori Language Week.


Chief Executive Ngahiwi Apanui says the key message is don't be shy, give it a try and learn a little, use a little every day.

“No one should be afraid to give our national language a go”.

He korero anō | more information

The ad was produced by Augusto, one of New Zealand’s leading advertising agencies based in Auckland. Frickin Dangerous Bro is made up of Jamaine Ross, James Roque & Pax Assadi, regulars on New Zealand’s comedy circuit and will be familiar to many Kiwis from their TV appearances on shows like 7 Days, Jono and Ben, Brown Eye and more. The full video can be viewed here.

In addition to the comedy video, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori has also produced videos featuring our three Māori Language Ambassadors, which can be found here.
