Kia kaha te reo Māori | Make the Māori Language Strong
It’s as easy as picking up a newspaper or scrolling online to see that te reo Māori still polarises our society. Whether it be a “Stop ramming Māori language down our throats” sign or the hostile critique around the usage of the name Aotearoa, the hurdles faced in achieving a goal of having 1 million fluent te reo Māori speakers by 2040 are many.
Te Papa continues to strive towards making te reo Māori accessible for everyone in a variety of forms. Have you ever noticed our te reo Māori translation on our exhibition labels and signage?
