Getting involved with Te Kupu o te Wiki

Te Kupu o te Wiki means word of the week.

The Māori Language Commission is helping to grow our Māori language skills by giving us a new Māori word to learn each week. We’re doing this over 50 weeks, so by the end you will have loads of new Māori words to add to your vocab.

They’re words we can easily use in day to day conversation; so write, say, email, and draw each week’s new word to get on board Te Kupu o te Wiki with us.

We have a team of volunteers who have been trained to deploy the Instant Network in the Pacific Region in times of emergency.

The Instant Network helps relief agencies operate during natural disasters and emergencies by providing emergency mobile communications.

Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori

Māori Language Week is a time of great celebration at Vodafone.

Our contact centre agents greet customers in Te Reo, and we host an annual Māori Expo celebrating the diverse traditions of this beautiful language. Each year we look to build on the past and expand our promotion of Te Reo Māori.

Hika Lite App on a mobile

Hika Lite app

Our commitment to Te Reo and Tikanga Māori is part and parcel of living and working in New Zealand, so we worked with Hika Group to launch the Hika Lite app during Māori Language Week 2012.

The app lets you quickly and easily translate English into Māori on your mobile, and our work with Hika received a commendation at the 2012 Maori Language Week awards.  Working with Hika Group we were able to offer the first 50,000 apps for free, and in the end 125,000 were downloaded in a year.
