Te Ataarangi
Kia kore koe e ngaro taku reo rangatira

National Te Ataarangi Hui (Hui Whānui)

 

Held annually, at a national level, the Hui Whānui is hosted in turn by each of the Te Ataarangi regions.  Each year community members are provided with an opportunity to come together and share information. 

Students, teachers, elders, native speakers, parents and children are exposed to an environment where the Māori language is spoken 24/7.  It's fun, it's enjoyable, and it's embraced by speakers of all fluency levels.  

If you are yet to experience the joy of speaking another language, the hui whānui will motivate you to speak Māori - naturally, confidently and with pride.  You will also become aware of matters pertaining to language revitalisation, and what you can do to address these issues.  

Hui whānui activities are based on Te Ataarangi Language Revitalisation initiatives.  Dynamic language workshops cater for all fluency levels, beginners to advanced. Forums delivered in a relaxed atmosphere expose participants to other initiatives and practice strategies.  

In 2017 the Hui Whānui will be hosted by the Taranaki / Whanganui region.  

Date:  13-15 October, 2017.  

Venue:  Rātana Pā.  

Pōhiri: 2pm.
