Kaupapa Matua / Theme
Tuia Te Reo Māori ki te Mātauranga Matua
Weaving Te Reo Māori into Tertiary Education
Ko te tau 2022 te tau e whakanuia ai te huritau 50 o Te Petihana Reo Māori, te huritau 40 o Te Kōhanga Reo, te tau hoki kua whakaritea nei e Te Rūnanga Whakakotahi i ngā Iwi o te Ao hei ‘Tekau Tau mō ngā Reo Taketake o te Ao’.
2022 is the year in which we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Te Reo Māori Petition, the 40th anniversary of Te Kōhanga Reo, as well as the United Nation’s ‘International Decade of Indigenous Languages’.
Ko tā Tuia Te Ako 2022 he hono i te Mātauranga Matua me te reo Māori, arā, kia whai akoranga ai tātou mai i ngā tau 50 kua hipa nei; kia whakaaturia ake ngā mahi papai o tēnei wā; ā, kia hanga mahere hoki mō ngā rā e tū mai nei; nāwai rā, kia matomato anō ai te tipu o te reo Māori i ngā whakahaere o Aotearoa.
Tuia Te Ako 2022 will connect tertiary education and te reo Māori to learn from the past 50 years; to share current good practices; and to plan for a future where te reo Māori is flourishing as a normal part of life in Aotearoa.
History of Tuia Te Ako
In August 2010, the inaugural Māori tertiary education hui, Tuia Te Ako, was held at Pipitea marae, Wellington. It was agreed that there was a need for such a gathering for Māori educators to come together to reflect on, and share, aspects of tertiary teaching and learning and that the event would be an ideal forum to discuss and share existing models of good teaching practice with a focus on assisting whānau, hapū, iwi, and Māori communities to achieve their aspirations.
