Strengthening our connection to Aotearoa
Since entering the New Zealand market in 1998, we’ve been on a learning journey to embed māori language, knowledge and culture in our business with the goal of building long-term and meaningful relationships with Māori as Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa, New Zealand.
Te Hā Whero
Te Hā Whero is Vodafone New Zealand’s kapa haka team, made up of people from all parts of the business under a shared purpose. We come together to celebrate the Māori culture within Vodafone New Zealand and around the world.
Partnering for Te Reo Māori
Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori (the Māori Language Commission) and Vodafone New Zealand have been walking the journey of te reo māori together for many years. From Vodafone’s inaugural celebrations for Te Wiki o te Reo Māori and becoming sponsors of Ngā Tohu Reo Māori (Māori Language Awards) since 2011, to signing a Whakaaetanga (agreement) to embed te reo māori within Vodafone since 2018 - we’re proud of our long term relationships and focus on te reo in partnership with Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori.
On the learning journey through Te Ara Reo Māori
In March 2020, 30 of our Vodafone whānau started their own journey of Te Reo Māori to help them (re-)connect with their culture, their whānau and the indigenous language of Aotearoa, New Zealand. We’re grateful for our partnership with Te Wānanga o Aotearoa who have made this dream a reality for many of our team and helping us bring to life our Māori Language Strategy.
