Te Reo Māori: A new era for the language | Hēmi Kelly

Te reo Māori, the native language of Aotearoa/New Zealand, was declared an official language of the country as recently as 1987. However, today it is increasingly common to hear te reo used. In this talk, Hemi Kelly explores the benefits of learning te reo Māori, and addresses possible obstacles that have hindered learning in the past, so that the language can continue to flourish and reach new heights of recognition in the future. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
