Dr Hinemoa Elder, Tigilau Ness, Rei announced | Ko Tākuta Hinemoa Elder rātou ko Tigilau Ness, ko Rei hei Pou Whakatairanga i Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki 2021 as 2021 AAF Ambassadors
We are very excited to announce Dr Hinemoa Elder, Tigilau Ness and Rei as our 2021 Festival Ambassadors! These three legends will be flying the flag for Auckland Arts Festival/Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki (AAF), and making sure Aucklanders know all about our huge range of shows and events.
E hiamo katoa ana mātou ki te whakapaoho ake, ko Tākuta Hinemoa Elder rātou ko Tigilau Ness, ko Rei hei Pou Whakatairanga i tā tātou hui Ahurei 2021! Mā tēnei tokotoru taiea Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki e whakatairanga, e mātua mōhio ai ngā tāngata o Tāmaki Makaurau ki te whānuitanga o ngā whakaaturanga me ngā kaupapa ka tū i tā tātou hui Ahurei.
Flying the flag for te reo Māori, Rei and Hinemoa are also helping to shout out the kaupapa of Toitū Te Reo at AAF. Woven throughout the Festival, Toitū Te Reo programming forms part of our Māori Language Plan, and ensures that te reo Māori is heard, seen and experienced every day of AAF 2021. Rei and Hinemoa are both passionate about keeping te reo alive, and we are grateful to have their support.
Hei pou whakatairanga i te reo Māori, mā Rei rāua ko Hinemoa te kaupapa o Toitū Te Reo ki Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki e whakatairanga anō hoki. He mea whiri ki te whānuitanga o te hui Ahurei, ko te hōtaka Toitū Te Reo hei wāhi o tā mātou Mahere Reo Māori, ka mutu, mā konei e rangona ai te reo Māori, ā-taringa mai, ā-kanohi mai, ā-roto mai anō i ia rā o Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki 2021. E ngākaunui ana a Rei rāua ko Hinemoa ki te oranga tonutanga o te reo Māori, me te aha, e ngākau reka ana mātou i tā rāua tautoko mai.
Look out for Hinemoa, Rei and Tigi online, and at AAF 2021.
Whāia a Hinemoa rātou ko Rei, ko Tigi i te ao tuihono, otirā, i Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki 2021.
