Te Hui Ahurei Reo Māori o Te Whanganui-ā-Tara
Te Hui Ahurei Reo Māori o Te Whanganui-a-Tara launched last year to mark the 50th anniversary of the Māori language Petition. By popular demand, the programme between Wellington City Council, Te Āti Awa, Taranaki Whānui and Ngāti Toa Rangatira is returning this year.
The inaugural Te Hui Ahurei Reo Māori took place in 2022 as part of the commemorations of Te Petihana – the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the Māori language petition to Parliament. Following that Festival’s success and calls from the community for it to continue, the 2023 Te Hui Ahurei Reo Māori looks to plant a seed for the future and will feature a small collection of arts events from across the City to celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori. The hope is that Te Hui Ahurei will grow in the years to come and will play a role in the revitalisation and celebration of Te Reo Māori in Te Whanganui-a-Tara.
Join us again this September from 11 - 17. More information to come soon.
