For the past two festivals, Auckland Arts Festival has been proud to honour our commitment to te reo Māori through the delivery of programmes under Toitū Te Reo, our language plan that upholds the mana of te reo as a treasure and as an integral part of our normal, everyday lives here in Tāmaki.

With the aim of ensuring that te reo Māori is seen and heard every day, we have integrated it into all aspects of the Festival – from the theme of aroha, to the naming of the opening and closing events as well as our te reo programmes.

Through the platform of the arts, te reo will resound all across Auckland, starting with the opening event Te Tīmatanga and rounding out with the closing Kia ora, Tāmaki! celebration. Kapa haka, poetry, music, Māori artists, waiata sing alongs and kōrero will bring the taonga that is te reo front and centre for audiences to enjoy, participate and engage with.

Te Reo Māori – connecting the past, present and future
Tukuna tō reo kia rere. Karawhiua!

I ngā tau e rua nei, kua poho kūkupa katoa te hui Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki Makaurau i tana whakatinana i tōna ngākau titikaha ki te reo Māori mā roto mai i te whakatutukihanga o ngā hōtaka i raro i te maru o Toitū Te Reo. Koinei tā mātou rautaki reo e whakaū nei i te mana o te reo Māori hei taonga, hei wāhi matua hoki o ngā rā katoa o ō tātou ao i Tāmaki Makaurau nei.

Nā runga i tā mātou whai kia kitea, kia rangona anō te reo Māori i ia rā, i ia rā, kua tuia te reo ki ngā wāhi katoa o te hui Ahurei - mai anō i te kaupapa matua o te aroha, tae atu ki ngā ingoa kua tapaina ki ngā kaupapa whakatuwhera, whakakapi anō i te hui nei, ā, tae atu anō ki ngā hōtaka reo Māori.

Mā roto mai i te waka o te ao toi, ka rangona te reo Māori huri i Tāmaki Makaurau, tīmata mai ana i te kaupapa whakatuwhera, i Te Tīmatanga, ā, tae noa atu ki te kaupapa whakanui hei whakakapi ake, ki Kia ora, Tāmaki! Mā te kapa haka, mā te toikupu, mā te pūoru, mā ngāi ringatoi Māori, mā te waiata tahi, mā te kōrero anō e whakatairangahia ai te taonga o te reo Māori, e whai wāhi ai ngā whakaminenga ki tōna reka.

Te Reo Māori – he mea kōtuitui i te nanahi, ki te nāianei, ki te āpōpō.
Tukuna tō reo kia rere. Karawhiua!
