Are you up for the reo Māori Challenge?

Naumai hoki mai anō ki Mahuru Māori. 

In line with our maramataka Māori, next year Mahuru Māori starts on Friday 15 September 2023.

It doesn’t matter whether your reo skills stop at kia ora, or you can whaikōrero on the marae with the best of them, Mahuru Māori is something we can all do.

So jump on the waka e hoa mā, and let’s give Mahuru Māori our best shot.
Here’s our Poutiaki Reo/Tikanga Lyndsay Te Puaheiri Snowden with some more words of encouragement.

How it works

It can be anything that makes you speak more Māori. An hour a day, half the day, all day every day, or as a beginner just start with greeting and farewells in Māori.

2. Get your mates involved

Get a team of friends, family or workmates involved and plan some virtual catch ups. You’ll have more fun, stay motivated and feel more comfortable in the reo zone.

3. Speak te reo Māori

Speak te reo Māori as much as you can during Mahuru. Every time you do, you’re revitalising te reo and breathing life back into our native tongue. Be brave, be bold and be patient.

We're taking the Mahuru Challenge. Will You?

Comes and goes this greeting to the enthusiasts, you the group who exhaust ones energy so that our esteemed language does not die, acknowledgements to you all. Welcome again to our intiative thus truly appeasing the Māori heart, at the same time the month of Mahuru continues to be Māori.

We’re all taking this year’s Mahuru Māori challenge. The aim is to learn and gain the confidence to speak te reo Māori in our everyday lives. Some of us are just beginning, others will immerse themselves all day long, everyday. Read more of our stories here.

Mahuru next year according to maramataka Māori begins on 15 September 2023
