Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2018: Mīharo kē!
for 17 Mahuru 2018 | 17 September 2018
He Kōrero mai i Ngahiwi Apanui, Tumuaki, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori
Statement from Ngahiwi Apanui, Chief Executive, Māori Language Commission

Mīharo kē te Wiki o te reo Māori 2018! Māori Language Week 2018 has been astonishing!

New Zealanders from all cultures stepped out, literally, in hīkoi whakanui – parades – around the country to celebrate our nation’s language – te reo o tō tātou whenua – and our shared Aotearoatanga – national pride.

We said ‘ahakoa iti, akona, korerotia – learn a little and use a little’. Koia anō. And that’s just what happened.

In the year ahead – ā te tau e tū mai nei - we can together further revitalise the Māori language - mā tātou katoa te reo Māori e whakarauora:

• Whakatauhia te reo Māori ki te wāhi mahi me te hapori
Make te reo welcome at work and in the community
• Whakahautia ētahi atu ki te kōrero, ki te ako hoki i te reo Māori; whakaurua mai hoki te reo Māori ki tōu ao
Encourage others to use and learn te reo Māori; welcome Māori language into your life
• Kia tika tonu te whakahua i te kupu Māori i ngā wā e kōrero Pākehā ana
Pronounce Māori words correctly when speaking English
• Kia nui ake te ako ka kōrero ai
Learn more, and use what you know
• Ahakoa e ako ana koe, kahore rānei, e āhei ana tātou katoa ki te tautoko i te whakarauora i reo Māori
Everyone, whether learning or not, can contribute to te reo Māori revitalisation:
• Whāia te ara poutama o te reo ka tohatoha haere ai.
Keep improving your language, and share what you know

Nō reira ka nui aku mihi ki a koutou katoa e hāpai ana i tēnei taonga, te reo taketake o Aotearoa.
Congratulations everyone who upholds this treasured possession, our indigenous language and its place in New Zealand.

Gordon Campbell: On Our Unreal Optimism About The Economic Impact Of Coronavirus

At this week’s Chinese New Year celebrations, PM Jacinda Ardern was resolutely upbeat that business with China would soon bounce back to normal – better than ever, even - once the coronavirus epidemic has been brought under control. To Ardern, the adversity has only accentuated just how close we are to Beijing Nothing wrong with being upbeat, if it can calm the nerves and turn business sentiment into a self-fulfilling prophecy. The problems begin when the optimism detaches itself from reality. What has been very odd so far about the coronavirus episode is that global share markets – normally spooked by mere sneezes or sniffles in the world’s major economies - have continued to be fairly positive, even as the epidemic has unfolded...
