To celebrate Te Wiki o te Reo Māori this year, in addition to attending one of our Māori Language Week events or activities , Te Waka Pākākano are launching two new rauemi reo (Māori language resources) designed to support you with using and valuing te reo in your everyday mahi.
The UC Te Reo Māori Style Guide, available as both a downloadable and printable PDF and an easy to use webpage, is now available on the UC Style Guide website. The Reo Māori Style has been developed by the UC Ohu Reo and is a helpful handbook for UC staff on how to ensure the use of te reo Māori across all our UC publications, social media and marketing is accurate and consistent. Look out for the tohu (icon) that symbolises te reo Māori which has a waha (mouth) and ārero (tongue).
The second rauemi reo, available on Te Waka Pākākano | Office of the Assistant Vice-Chancellor Māori AKO | LEARN site, is a Karakia booklet. The Karakia booklet includes a selection of karakia for kaimahi (staff) of UC to support them with beginning and closing hui, and to indicate appreciation for kai (food). Useful sound files to help you with pronunciation are also included and you can also print or save a copy as a downloadable PDF.
Nā reira, e ngā manu kōrihi, e ngā manu korokī o tō tātou whare wānanga nei!
Kia hāro tō tātou reo Māori anō nei he kāhu ki runga i ngā mānia o Waitaha!
Tēnā, tukua kia rere ki te ao!
