Ākina Te Reo – give Te Reo Māori a go!
Why not have a go at Te Reo Māori?
More videos will be added throughout the year, incorporating Te Reo phrases from Te Taura Whiri I Te Reo Māori (Māori Language Commission).
Council has an enduring partnership with tāngata whenua embedded through the Memorandum of Partnership and the partnership committee Te Whakaminenga o Kāpiti. This committee has defined a vision for the district which includes four principles, the second of which outlines Te Reo as:
- the language of the tāngata whenua through which tikanga is conveyed and kawa and wairua expressed
- an official language of New Zealand and a deeply treasured taonga left by our Māori ancestors
- needing to be nurtured throughout all levels of the community
- a language which should continue to prosper and be spoken by future generations.
