Tōku reo, tōku ohooho
Tōku reo, tōku mapihi maurea
Tōku reo, tōku whakakai marihi

Ko Te Reo Māori te reo tuatahi, te reo taketake o ngā moutere kai te kiia nei ko Aotearoa ināianei, arā, ko Te Ika a Māui, ko Te Waka a Māui, ko Te Punga o Te Waka hoki. Koia te reo i kōrerotia e ngā mātua tūpuna, ā, i tukuna iho mai hai taonga mō tatou. Kāore i tukuna kia rite ki te moa ka ngaro, engari, ka kōrero tonu mō ngā āhuatanga o te ao. Nō reira rā, ākona, puritia, kōrerotia, hai oranga mōu, mō tō whānau, hapū, iwi anō hoki.

E maha ngā mahi ka mahia mā Te Reo Māori, arā, ko ngā mahi katoa o Aotearoa whānui! Ki te hiahia te tangata ka āheitia te kōrero Māori i ngā wā katoa, i ngā wāhi katoa, nō reira rā, karawhiua e hine mā!

My language is my awakening
My language is my object of affection
My language is my most precious adornment

Te Reo Māori was the first language and is therefore the indigenous language of the islands known as Aotearoa, being The Great Fish of Māui (the North Island), The Canoe of Māui (the South Island), and The Anchor of The Canoe (Stewart Island). It’s the language that was spoken by our ancestors and bequeathed to us as a precious treasure. It wasn’t handed down to us so that it would become extinct like the moa, but so that we would continue to use it to describe every aspect of the world around us. So, learn it, hold on to it, and speak it as a source of wellbeing for you and your whānau, hapū, and iwi.

There are lots of career paths for Māori speakers, in fact, every career path that exists in Aotearoa! If you want, you’re able to always speak Māori and in all places, so do it kōhine mā!
