Description

Celebrate te wiki o te reo Māori with us. The theme for 2018 is Kia Kaha te Reo Māori — 'Strength for an endangered language comes from its status, people being aware of how to support revitalisation, people acquiring and using it and from the language having the right words and terms to be used well for any purpose.'

Willy-John Martin will facilitate with 3 thinkers who are at the cutting edge of technological innovations around indigenous language normalisation. Te Taka Keegan will address these questions and discuss some of the achievements and opportunities for te reo Māori in this arena.

This event is organised by National Library of New Zealand.
