Tēnā tātou katoa,
Kua hora te kahu wera o Hine-raumati, pūāwai mai ana ngā rau o te pōhutukawa. Ko tōna rite, ko te pūāwaitanga o tā tātou kaupapa mō te reo o Ngāti Hauā. He hua nō te rau ringaringa, he pua nō te rau aroha. Tēnā uhia mai ō kanohi ki te rau o te aroha!
In October of this year, Ngāti Hauā Iwi Trust was proud to host its first-ever Te Reo symposium ‘Kōkōia, e ara’ at Te Wharekura o Te Rau Aroha. Over 250 people attended the symposium, which focussed on building knowledge of Te Reo in key areas such as whaikōrero, karanga, and mōteatea. Surveys and discussions were also conducted at the symposium, to gather your ideas for a long-term Te Reo strategy for Ngāti Hauā.
The information gathered has been compiled into a report titled ‘Tonui Reo, Tōnui Tangata: A Flourishing Language, A Flourishing People’. Towards a long-term Te Reo revitalisation approach for Ngāti Hauā. A copy of this report has been attached for your perusal, click on image to open.
The purpose of the report is to help Ngāti Hauā Iwi Trust, in conjunction with Te Ohu Reo o Ngāti Hauā, to develop a draft strategy in readiness for the annual Ngāti Hauā hui-ā-iwi in February. Once completed, the strategy will be used to guide the Te Reo revitalisation efforts of the Trust in the long-term.

Kāti, noho ake rā i roto i ngā mihi.
