PRESENTATION  DETAILS:
Te Reo Māori: The Art of Resilience
presented by Professor Jeanette King170713-Jeanette King
The initiatives to revitalise the Māori language continue to be a beacon of inspiration for endangered indigenous languages worldwide. What is it about te reo, its speakers and its situation that help to support and maintain language revitalisation? This lecture describes a range of factors: from the orthography, through to the Treaty of Waitangi, to aspects of Māori cultural practice.

The presentation also highlights some of the new initiatives and strategies being implemented around the country, along with future strategic goals. The lecture concludes with an outline of new courses, programmes of study and initiatives which Aotahi are developing to support the continued vibrancy of te reo Māori, the first language of Aotearoa/New Zealand.

He Pitopito Reo – Snippets of language

In a new semi-regular column, Intercom will share sound files of pronunciation so we can all learn to say Te Reo Māori words correctly – where possible, before we develop bad habits.

The first word is Rehua – the name that the refurbished former Commerce building will be known as when it opens.
