What is Mahuru Māori?

He aha a Mahuru Māori?

He wero a Mahuru Māori mā tēnā mā tēnā, mā tātou tahi hei hiki, ahakoa te taumata o te mōhiotanga ki te reo Māori. Ko te ngako, ko te kōrerotia o te reo i ia rā o te marama o Mahuru.

Māu anō e whiriwhiri ko tēwhea taumata i te tīmatatanga o te marama ki tāu e mōhio nei, e taea ana e koe te whakatutuki. Anei:

  • Kotahi hāora ia rā
  • Haurua o te rā ia wiki
  • Kotahi rā ia wiki
  • Kotahi wiki o te marama
  • Ia rā o te roanga ake o Mahuru.

Kātahi ka kōrero/tuhituhi/waiata koe i te reo Māori i te marama o Mahuru ki tā ō whāinga nāu anō i whakarite.

Rēhita mai ināianei ki tēnei Mahuru Māori i tēnei tau tonu nei, ā, mā mātou koe hei whakamōhio ki ngā rauemi ako, ki ngā hui reo, ki ngā ihirangi āwhina hei ārahi i a koe kia tutuki pai ai ō ake whāinga ā reo.

Mahuru Māori is a challenge for each and every one of us to take up, no matter what our current level of Māori language may be. The idea is that we consciously speak more of the Māori language everyday during the month of September.

You set the frequency at the start of the month, to a level which is achievable and realistic. This could be:

  • an hour everyday
  • half the day everyday
  • one day per week
  • one week of the month
  • everyday for the entire month.

Then, during the month of September you will speak/write/sing only the Māori language according to the goal you have set.

Register now your participation in this year’s Mahuru Māori and we’ll keep you updated with learning resources, Māori language events and supportive content to keep you on track to achieve success in your Māori language goal.

Ngā rauemi (āwhina)

Kaupapa card

Kua whaihangatia e mātou ētehi rauemi hei āwhina i a koe, i tēnei wero arā ko Mahuru Māori. Ko te puka kīanga, ko te rārangi kupu, ko ngā kāri whakamahuki, ko ngā punua pāpāho me ngā whakaahua ērā hei rapunga māu, kia tohaina, kia tāruatia anō hoki.

We’ve created a variety of free resources to assist you in your Mahuru Māori language challenge. These include phrase books, vocabulary charts, explanation cards, podcasts and graphics for you to download, share and even print.

Ngā rauemi (ako)

Pūrārangi Māori

Ki te hunga tauhou ki te reo Māori, kua whakaemihia e mātou ētehi rauemi tino ngahau nei hei āwhina i a koe ki te tīmata. Ko ngā whāinga, ko te whakahua, ko te kupu hou, ko te mihi, ko ngā wāhi me ētehi atu mea.

For those new to Te Reo Māori (the Māori language) we’ve put together a bunch of fun interactives to help you get started. These are aimed to assist you with basic pronounciation, learning basic words, greetings, place names and more.
