Te Wiki o te Reo Māori at the University Libraries

Welcome to Te Wiki o te Reo Māori!

The Library is celebrating Te Wiki o te reo Māori 2022 and the 50th anniversary of the presentation of the Māori language petition to Parliament with a variety of engaging displays and events.

Visit the displays at the Central, Health Sciences and Hocken Libraries.

Online you can learn more about the benefits of using Ngā Ūpoko Tukutuku | Māori Subject Headings to find Māori resources within the University of Otago Library's collection!

A display in the Health Sciences Library highlights the 4 Māori health models: Te Pae Māhutonga; Te Whare Tapa Whā; Te Wheke; Meihana. The display also references the new proposed organisational structure for the Māori Health Authority which supports the analogy of a waka hourua on a journey to Pae Tawhiti using the traditional compass to help navigate.

A display in the Central Library compliments the nearby Te Takarangi panels which celebrate Māori publications. It encourages engagement with both Te Takarangi and the rich Te Reo Māori resources available at the library.

At the Hocken a display is centred on the themes Kai & Kēmu.

As well as this fun and varied display drawn from across the Hocken Collections you are welcome to join us for two events to celebrate Te Wiki O Te Reo.

Ngā Upoko Tukutuku | Māori Subject Headings play a key role in providing access to Māori resources and literature in te reo Māori and about Māori for our tauira and researchers.

To find out how they can help and how to use them visit our guide:  Ngā Upoko Tukutuku: Kāinga | Home.

Visit the Hocken Collections events page for more details.

Kia kaha te reo Māori!
