Celebrate online: Sunday 25 September – Saturday 1 October
Last year’s theme for Vaiaso o te Gana Tuvalu – Tuvalu Language Week was Fakaakoigina tou iloga kae tukeli ke magoi mote ataeao which means, embracing our culture and a more secure, vibrant future.
Fakaakoigina tou iloga kae tukeli ke magoi mote ataeao highlights the important role language and culture has when securing a vibrant future for Tuvaluans across Aotearoa. It encourages language and culture to be embraced to build strong foundations of perseverance, success, and health equity.
By taking a holistic view of wellbeing and positive outcomes, the theme is also a reminder of the power of embracing both traditional and new ways of doing things especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last year’s theme reflected the overarching 2021 Pacific Language Week theme of Wellbeing, by linking the importance of language to overall wellbeing.
Due to COVID-19 Alert Levels across Aotearoa Vaiaso o te Gana Tuvalu – Tuvalu Language Week was celebrated online.
This year’s theme will be revealed soon.
