Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2018 – Kia Kaha te Reo Māori!

He mea pānui i Ngā Tohu Reo Māori hei te 10-16 o Mahuru 2018 tū ai Te Wiki o te Reo Māori o tērā tau. Ko te 14 o Mahuru te Rā o te Reo Māori, he whakamaumaharatanga ki te rā i te tau 1972 i tāpaea ai te petihana mō te reo Māori ki te whare pāremata. Whai hoki, tērā anō te tini māioio e hāpai ana i a Mahuru Māori, e kōrero ai rātou i te reo Māori koia anake mō te roanga o te marama.

Anei te pepeha o Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2018: ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’. E whai ana i te ‘Kia Ora te Reo Māori’ o tēnei tau.  E mōhio pai ana a Aotearoa whānui ki te kōrero ‘Kia Kaha’, me te tikanga, e whakahau ana i te tangata kia māia, kia tū pakari. He wā anō tīkina atu ai he kupu e hāngai nui ana ki te tangata, ka whakahāngai kē ai ki te reo – inā ngā kōrero mō te hauora o te reo me te whakaora reo.  Nō konā, ko te pepeha nei, ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ – e whakatenatena ana i a tātou kia kori ake ki te whakakaha i te reo Māori.

Ka kitea he kaha, he ngoi mō te reo e mōrearea ana tāna noho i te nui o tōna mana, i te noho mārama mai o te iwi whānui me pēhea te tautoko i ngā mahi whakarauora reo, i te ako me te kōrero a te mātinitini i te reo, me te noho mai o ngā kupu katoa e rite ana e taea ai ngā kaupapa kōrero katoa a ōna tāngata te kawe ki taua reo. 

He ngoi kei ngā tāngata katoa o Aotearoa ki te whakakaha ake i tō tātou reo. Kua tatū ngā rā, kua tatū anō te kaupapa whāiti mō tērā tau, ā, ko te tūmanako kia ngaringari ake ngā whakahaere, ngā kamupene me ngā rōpū i te hapori ka āta manaaki mai i Te Wiki o te Reo Māori 2018. Kia kaha rā tātou!
