Kua pānuitia i te rā nei ngā whiringa toa o te tekau mā ono o Ngā Tohu Reo Māori a Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.

E whā tekau mā ono ngā kaiwhakataetae whiringa toa mai i ngā kaiwhakauru 150 koni atu. Ko te hui whakahōnore ka taurimahia e Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori i tēnei tau, ka tū ki te Cordis, Tāmakimakaurau ā te 6 o Hakihea.

E ai ki te Tumuaki o Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, a Ngahiwi Apanui: "He kaupapa nui ngā tohu nei ki te maramataka mō te reo Māori; he wāhi hoki ki te whakanui i te hunga e roa ana tō rātou ū ki te whakarauora i te reo Māori."

Ko te tāhÅ« anō o te tau 2019, ko ‘Kia kaha te Reo Māori’. TÄ«tiro ki ēnei kaiwhiringa - āe, e kaha ana’!

Ko ngā karangatanga whakataetae i tēnei tau, ko ngā tohu mō ngā tāngata takitahi, mō ngā rōpū anō hoki, i roto i ngā mahi toi me ngā mahi whakangahau, ngā whare mātauranga, te ao pakihi, tae atu ki ngā tāngata me te mahi pāpāho.

Finalists in the Māori Language Commission’s 16th Ngā Tohu Reo Māori, the National Māori Language Awards, have been announced.

40 finalists have been selected from more than 150 nominations. This year’s ceremony will be hosted by the Commission and will be held at Cordis Auckland on 6 December.

Māori Language Commission Chief Executive Ngahiwi Apanui says the awards are an important event in the Māori language calendar and an opportunity to acknowledge long-term commitment by individuals and groups to Māori language revitalisation.

"The 2019 theme was again ‘Kia kaha te reo Māori’: ‘May the Māori language be strong’. These finalists show that yes, it is strong!".

Categories this year include awards for individuals and groups, for categories such as arts and entertainment, education, business, media and broadcasting.
