Kua riro i a Kora Aotearoa (Spark) me te Papakupu Te Aka te Tohu Huia te Reo i Ngā Tohu Reo Māori 2018.
Mō ā rātou mahi whanake i te taupānga kore utu ‘Kupu’ te tohu nei i āhei ai te tangata ki te tuhi i ā rātou waea ki te tētahi mea, ka puta ai te kupu Māori mō taua mea.
36 ngā rōpū, tangata hoki i tae ki te whiringa whakamutunga mai i ngā tautapanga 150, te huhua rawa o ngā tautapanga mai i te tīmatanga o ngā tohu i te tau 2004, 400 anō hoki ngā tāngata i tae ki te whakanui i te kaupapa i Te Papa i te pō nei.
Ko Te Amorangi Whatarangi Winiata o Ngāti Raukawa i whakawhiwhia ki te Tohu Oranga Angitu. Nāna te kaupapa Whakatipu Rua Mano i kōkiri i te tau 1975, ā, ko te tikanga he whakarauora i te reo o Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāti Toa me Te Atiawa. Hei tā Te Ahorangi Rawinia Higgins, Toihau o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, ko tana ārahitanga o Whakatipuranga Rua Mano te taunaki e taea ana te whakarauora reo i ngā iwi, i te hapori anō hoki.
“I whakaatu Te Ahorangi Winiata te wāhi matua o ngā pūkenga whakahaere moni, whakamahere me te whakahaere rauemi hei whakamānawa i ngā kaituku pūtea me te hunga mahi tahi.
Hei tā te Tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori a Ngahiwi Apanui, e whakaatu ana te mahi tahi a Kora me Te Aka i te piki haeretanga o te hiahia o ngā kamupene nui ki te whakamahi i te reo Māori. I whakataetae ētahi atu kamupene i ngā tohu. “Kāore e tū atu i te reo Māori ki te whakaatu i tō tātou Aotearoatanga, a, he nui hoki ngā kamupene e kite ana i te hua o te reo Māori e eke panuku ai rātou, e takoha anō ai ki te whakarauoratanga o te reo Māori.
“Ko ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ te kaupapa o Te Wiki o te Reo Māori i tēnei tau. I whakaatu mai ngā tohu reo Māori o tēnei tau, āe, kei te kaha te reo!”
