Māori Language week celebrated at Oamaru Library



Culture Waitaki staff from the Oamaru Library, Forrester Gallery and North Otago Museum are celebrating Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, Māori Language week 9-15 September. The community are invited to drop in to the Oamaru Library and have a go playing Wharewhare (bingo). This is a great chance to learn while having fun practising te Reo Māori.

Lisa Potaka-Ross, Library Assistant said, “The theme for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori this year is ‘Kia Kaha te Reo Māori’ ‘Let’s make the Māori language strong'. This activity is a small way we can ensure that the Māori language is being heard and spoken in our community.”
