Corporates get on te reo bus
Corporates and creatives are joining in to celebrate Te Wiki o te reo Māori.
Air New Zealand is sharing its Kia Rere app with the public.
The app was created by Air New Zealand in partnership with NZ Māori Tourism and produced by Kiwa Digital for staff to practice and improve their reo.
It has a range of interactive features including audio learning and the ability to create a mihimihi and share the user’s journey in te reo Māori.
NZ Post is supporting Māori Language week by helping with the delivery of more than 2500 Tākaro Māori te reo board games to schools throughout Aotearoa.
The game was developed by Hamilton-based Game Kings, whose director Eliot Jessep says it has proved popular with teachers and schools since it was launched 18 months ago.
Tākaro was designed to promote and normalise the use of te reo in everyday conversations.
And top selling band Six60 has created a collectors booklet for its song Pepeha for sale through New World stores and online shop.
