Te Wiki o te Reo Māori at Westfield Manukau

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori. Kia kaha te Reo Māori - Let’s make the Māori Language strong!

To kick off the week, we gave some of our signage around the centre a makeover, showing our support for the Māori language and its importance to our customers.

We brought along Mahi Pai to help us celebrate Māori Language Week with a special performance followed by a meet and geet with Mahi Pai's very own taniwha!

A fun and exciting way to learn Te Reo Māori and New Zealand Sign Language, Mahi Pai promoted the revitalization and validation of Te Reo Māori in Aotearoa. The jam packed, live musical performance featured the life sized taniwha characters, captivating children's interest and excitement with dance, kapahaka, hip hop and funk music.

A big thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating this special week. Let's continue to keep the Māori language strong every day of the year!
