Māori Language Week
TVNZ’s Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori
Māori Language week 2017 is from from 11-17 September, and we're celebrating on air and online!
Here at TVNZ, we want to get all New Zealanders involved in speaking Te Reo, regardless of age or background.
Using Snapchat, we want to encourage Kiwis to embrace Te Reo in their daily vocabulary. Follow tv.nz on Snapchat to get the daily word (kupu). Reply with a video of you giving it a go, and be in to win a $1,000 travel voucher. Ka pai!
We also sent Jack Tame out onto the streets to test his Te Reo whakahua (pronunciation) skills. We encouraged the New Zealand public to give it a go too, and have some fun with the language. We’ll be screening these clips throughout the week.
Breakfast and Seven Sharp will both feature Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori stories too. We’re even re-branding TVNZ 1 and 2, and our TVNZ.co.nz homepage.
So be watching TVNZ TAHI and TVNZ RUA from Monday (11th September), and get excited about Te Reo Māori!
