Cook Island Language Week

August 2, 2020 @ 12:00 am – August 8, 2020 @ 11:45 pm

The theme for Cook Islands language week is “Kia pūāvai tō tātou Reo Māori Kūki ‘Āirani i Aotearoa” which in English means “That the Cook Islands Māori language may blossom throughout New Zealand.”  The 2020 theme was developed by the Cook Islands Teachers & Educators Collective New Zealand (CITECNZ).  There is a strong focus on utilising technology and virtual platforms as a tool to promote language, culture, and identity.
