MAORI LANGUAGE WEEK

Te Reo Maori

 

Mate huka – diabetes

 

This week is Māori Language Week, running from July 4th to 10th.

The campaign aims to show New Zealand that there is a place for Māori language in our stadiums, on our sports fields, in the news and the ever growing world of social media. It also aims to prove that te reo Māori is a language for all New Zealanders.

The theme for this year is ākina te reo – behind you all the way, which is about using te reo Māori to support people, to inspire and to cheer on.

Māori Language Week is an annual campaign, led by the Māori Language Commission, to promote the language to New Zealand. The campaign is about raising awareness that New Zealand has its very own language and encouraging the use of it, with simple phrases every day, week and month of the year.

Māoris are at a higher risk of developing diabetes than many other ethnic groups. Ministry of Health data from 2014 shows that prevalence of diabetes amongst Māoris is almost twice as high as non-Māoris, with Māori adults 1.5 times more likely to have been diagnosed with diabetes after 25 years of age.
