Te REO MĀORI COURSES COMING SOON!
Te Reo Māori is an Eastern Polynesian language spoken by Māori, the indigenous population of Aotearoa New Zealand. Te Reo Māori (the Māori language) is closely related to Cook Islands Māori, Tuamotuan, and Tahitian. After a century of colonial indifference demonstrated by European migrants to Aotearoa New Zealand, Te Reo Māori finally gained recognition as one of New Zealand’s official languages in 1987. Recent Māori language revitalisation efforts, and pride in speaking Te Reo, have increased spoken Māori considerably over the last few decades. This resurgence is now being supported and promoted by various government agencies, non-profit organisations and associations and commercial businesses alike. This course is jointly sponsored by EarthDiverse and Go Eco.
Please note that this is an on-line course only. A visit to a local marae is included at the end of this course.
