Te wiki o te reo Māori (Maori Language Week) starts 10 September

30 Aug 2018

Help celebrate Te wiki o te reo Māori (10-16 September). Water New Zealand is proud to support Maori Language Week. We’ve prepared a poster for you to pin up in your office or by your desk that we hope will help in understanding the importance of water and the words we can use to describe water from a Māori perspective.

The poster shows us key water types with a description of what they mean and includes the importance of Ranginui (Sky Father) and Papatūānuku (Earth Mother) in providing us with precious waiora – life-sustaining water.

Go here to download the poster and please feel free to share it so we can all strengthen our understanding of ‘wai’ in Aotearoa.
