Find out the dates, history and traditions of Māori Language Week.

Māori Language Week is a government-sponsored initiative intended to encourage New Zealanders to promote the use of the Māori language, which, along with New Zealand Sign Language, is an official language of the country. 

Māori Language Week has been celebrated each year since 1975 and commemorates the presentation of the Māori language petition to parliament on September 14th 1972.

Held each year in September, the week is part of the broader Māori language revival and raises public awareness for Māori language revitalization, learning, and public usage.
