To celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō is giving away a te reo Māori start up/survival pack to encourage whānau to speak more te reo Māori in their homes and everyday lives.
As recently knighted Tā Tīmoti Kāretu said:
“Ko te kāinga te mauri o te reo” - The home offers the vital essence of language.
Recent statistics show that te reo Māori is still very much in dire straits, and we are currently investigating different ways to develop more reo champions and speakers amongst our Iwi. There will be more information about this later on.
The start up pack consists of a t-shirt, two te reo Māori books by reo champions Scotty and Stacey Morrison, and the first of a series of Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō Whare Wānanga resources.
All you need to do is register your interest by emailing email@example.com your name and address.
Also a big mihi to all of our whānau who have taken on the Mahuru Māori challenge!.
