Otago Daily Times

Te Wiki o te Reo Maori


KIA ora koutou.

Readers of the Otago Daily Times will this week notice a fresh phrase on the front page as they sip their morning kawhe.

To mark Te Wiki o te Reo Maori (Maori Language Week), we have replaced our regular motto above the ODT masthead with a te reo Maori translatio­n.

The ‘‘Independen­t voice of the South’’ will this week become ‘‘Te reo motuhake o te Toka’’ — and our thanks to Ngai Tahu and University of Otago experts for helping with the translatio­n.

Allied Press community newspapers will carry a separate message: ‘‘Kei te pu o to Hapori’’ — ‘‘At the heart of your community’’.
