Ka hihiri, ka wawana, ka ngahau hoki te wiki o te reo Māori 2016! Ka kite mai te motu o Aotearoa i te reo Māori kei ngā whare hākinakina, kei ngā papa tākaro, kei ngā pūrongo, kei te ipurangi hoki. Otirā ka rongo te motu ko te reo Māori tēnei mō ngā tāngata katoa o Aotearoa.
Hei te 4 – 10 o Hōngongoi tēnei hōtaka.
Ko te kaupapa i tēnei tau ko ākina te reo – behind you all the way ko te tautoko i te tangata mā te reo Māori, hei whakahihiko, hei hikihiki i ngā tāngata katoa – mā te reo Māori.
Whai ake i ngā mahi o tērā tau, Te Taura Whiri I te reo Māori 50 ngā rerenga kōrero Māori ngāwari, hei kōrero mā te hunga iti noa nei te reo.
E mau ai te mana o ngā rerenga kōrero ki tua atu i te wiki noa o te reo Māori, ka whakatairangatia anō ki ngā kaupapa hākinakina, tīmata ana i te whakataetae Ōrimipia me ētahi atu kaupapa hākinakina rongonui puta noa i te tau, ērā e hihiko ai te ngākau tangata ki te tautoko i ō tātou toa tākaro rongonui.
Hei ia tau ko Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori e ārahina ana e Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, hei whakatairanga i te reo ki Aotearoa. Mā te whakatairanga i te reo taketake o Aotearoa, ka mārama te motu katoa ki tōna reo, ki te kōrero hoki i ngā rerenga ngāwari ia rā, ia wiki, ia marama hoki o te tau.

Māori Language Week 2016
Māori Language Week 2016 is going to be positive, relevant, energetic, fun and exciting! It will show New Zealand that there is a place for the Māori language in our stadiums, on our sports fields, in the news and the ever growing realm of social media. It will also show the country that te reo Māori is a language for all New Zealanders.
The campaign will run from July 4 – 10.
The theme for this year is ākina te reo – behind you all the way which is about using te reo Māori to support people, to inspire and to cheer on.
Continuing with last year’s approach, Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori will develop 50 phrases in te reo Māori that are simple to use, even for those with little or no grasp of the language.
To ensure the phrases carry momentum, over and beyond the campaign week, they will hang them off sports events, starting with the Olympics and other popular sports codes and events that occur throughout the year, and that move our communities and the nation to rally behind our athletes.
