Ko te kaupapa o Mahuru Māori tētahi wero reo i puta mai i a Paraone Gloyne i te tau 2014. He hiahia nōna kia rangona whānuitia te reo, e puta hoki ai ki te ao o te ia rā. Nō reira ko te wero, kia reo Māori te reo whakawhitiwhiti (kōrero, tuhituhi, waiata, katoa e puta ana i a koe he reo Māori) mō te marama o Mahuru, ahakoa ki a wai, ahakoa, ki whea, ahakoa āwhea kōrero ai te tangata, me Māori te reo. Nā konā, kua tīkina ake tēnei kaupapa hei kōkiritanga whakakorikori i ngā kaimahi o Te Wānanga o Aotearoa ki aro mai ki tō tātou reo rangatira, kia pāohotia ki te ao.
The initiative of Mahuru Māori is a reo challenge that came about as a personal social experiment by Paraone Gloyne in 2014 as a way of broadcasting te reo, and normalising it in every day dealings. So the challenge is that Māori be used for communication (spoken, written, sung, everything that’s coming from you is to be Māori) for the month of September, regardless of who you speak to, where you speak it, and when you speak it, you speak only Māori. In that, we’ve taken up this opportunity to shake up our Wānanga o Aotearoa staff to take up te reo rangatira, and put it out to the world.
Our goal for Mahuru Māori 2020 is to get more than 12,000 registered participants actively using te reo Māori during the month of September to bring awarness to and help revitalise the Māori language.
This is double the 5,000 from 2019, which was double the 2,500 from 2018. Having gone through the statistics of Mahuru Māori in previous years we can see that well over half of all participants are beginners in the Māori language so we have set 2 new target challenges to suit beginners to make Mahuru Māori achievable. These are to either speak Māori for an hour each day or for half the day each day.
You can contribute to the success of Mahuru Māori and the revitalisation of the Māori language by:
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.
Ko te ture nui o te kaupapa ko te ū ki te reo, heoi, ki te rorirori haere koe me te whakaparahako i te reo Māori, me te kaupapa o Mahuru Māori, ka panaia koe, nō reira;
The purpose of the challenge is stick to te reo Māori. If you get a little silly and defame te reo Māori, and the kaupapa of Mahuru Māori, you will be asked to leave the group, so;
