Akina Te Reo - Te Wiki o te Reo Maori

Every year since 1975 New Zealand has marked Te Wiki o te Reo Māori.Despite being an official language of New Zealand since 1987, the birth of Māori-language schools, Māori radio stations and a Māori television channel, te reo Māori is still very vulnerable. Therefore Māori Language Week is but one effort, in a suite of efforts over a long term, to revive New Zealand’s indigenous language. 

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori / Māori Language Week is an annual campaign, led by Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, to get more New Zealanders learning and loving New Zealand's indigenous language.The aim of the week is to get as many New Zealanders as possible using more phrases in their everyday lives. By phrase, we mean a full sentence – be it long or short.

In 2016 Māori Language Week runs from 4-10 July, the theme this year is ākina to reo.
