He Wānanga Reo Māori ki Waikato University, 23-29 July

Tau kē Haki, Hineiti! Mā tātou katoa te reo e ora ai.

Published on Jul 12, 2012 by UniversityWaikato

The revitalisation of te reo comes under the spotlight at the University of Waikato during this month’s Māori Language Week which runs 23-29 July.

The University of Waikato hosts two free public lectures during the week, one entirely in te reo and one in English, but both address the issue of the revitalisation of te reo — what have we achieved and has New Zealand done enough? The theme of Māori Language Week is Arohatia te reo/Cherish the language.

Public lecture 1 takes place at 10am-12pm, 24th of July, in the Te Kohinga Mārama marae, University of Waikato. Keynote speakers will be Dr Rangi Matāmua, Pānia Papa & Koro Ngapo. This lecture is entirely in te reo Māori, and is free and open to the public.

Public Lecture 2 takes place from 6pm-7pm, at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, 26th of July. Keynote speakers will be Associate Professor Winnie Crombie & Dr Richard Benton. This lecture is in English, and is free and open to the public.
