Message from the Mayor

welcome to the September

September 11-17 is Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, where we get to celebrate te reo Māori as one of Aotearoa’s official languages. We’re running a lot of programmes in our Neighbourhood Hubs, including performances, kai, waiata, and games, that will immerse you in the language. Head over to your local Neighbourhood Hub, or turn over this booklet, to see what’s on offer.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori isn’t the only language we are celebrating this month. September also marks Uike Lea Faka-Tonga – Tonga Language Week and Chinese Language Week. Take a look at the rest of this booklet to see how we are recognising these languages at our Neighbourhood Hubs.

If you’re wanting to check out our local art scene, The Dowse Art Museum is hosting the Living in Colour gathering. This event aims to spread love, raise awareness, and foster a sense of belonging for our LGBTQIA+, Takatāpui, and MVPFAFF whānau and allies. Read more about it in the ‘Highlights’ section of this booklet.

Meanwhile, our Creative Communities Scheme Fund opens on September 14, supporting local groups and people wanting to start a project with an arts or cultural focus. Our Community Arts and Culture Advisor is available to meet with you to discuss the eligibility criteria, registration process, and how to apply. Go to the Hutt City Council website if you feel you meet the criteria for this fund.

I hope you all enjoy the first month of spring and take full advantage of the great community events we have on!

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori Māori Language Week

Every year in September, we celebrate Aotearoa New Zealand’s first language with Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori (Māori Language Week).

In 1972, a group of language champions, including Ngā Tamatoa, Victoria University’s Te Reo Māori Society, and Te Huinga Rangatahi presented a petition to parliament from over 30,000 New Zealanders asking the government to teach Māori language in schools.

A Māori Language Day introduced that year became Māori Language Week in 1975.

In 1982, Māori language champions marched to parliament again, calling for te reo to be made an official language in its own land.

In the same year, the first ever Kōhanga Reo was opened in Wainuiomata. Located in Pukeatua, Te Kōhanga Reo was intended to stop the decline of people

speaking te reo Māori by creating an environment for tamariki and pēpi to be immersed in their language and culture.

Nga Kaiwhakapūmau i te Reo (Wellington Board of Māori Language) took a claim to the Waitangi Tribunal in 1985 that asserted that te reo was a taonga that the Crown was obliged to protect under the Treaty of Waitangi.

In 1987, te reo Māori was declared an official language of New Zealand.

We celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori every year with programmes such as Wā Tiaki Pēpi, Kapa Haka, Tākaro, and of course the Māori Moment. So, head to your local Neighbourhood Hub to check out what is on offer this year for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori!

The Kia Kaha Te Reo Māori logo

The Kia kaha te reo Māori logo, often used in Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, was created by Te Taura Whiri i Te Reo Māori (The Māori Language Commission). It is a contemporary interpretation of the heitiki, representing strength, leadership, nurture, and Aotearoatanga. The tongue represents the elements of revitalisation: status, critical awareness, acquisition, use, and corpus.

The colours used in the arero represent the rākau used in teaching the Ataarangi method, familiar now to decades of school children and adults.
