Gagana Tokelauan Language Week 21 – 27 October 2018

Tokelau Flag

Malo ni! Tokelauan Language Week is being held from Sunday 21 October – Saturday 27 October 2018.

For people from Tokelau living in New Zealand, family, community, and language are the centre of Faka-Tokelau, the Tokelauan way of life.  

Over half of the country’s Tokelau community live in the Porirua and Hutt Valley areas of Wellington and there are also Tokelau communities in Auckland, Taupō, and Rotorua. Although your school may not have direct links to Tokelau, this national week provides the opportunity to introduce your students to the culture and language of Tokelau, helping to keep Gagana Tokelau alive in New Zealand. Why not connect electronically with another school in New Zealand, in order to learn Gagana Tokelau from the experts?

Tokelauan Language Week/Te Vaiaho o te Gagana Tokelau supports the curriculum principles of cultural diversity and inclusion, and provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate the vision of connection to a global community, explore the values of diversity, community, and respect and make use of key competencies, especially using language, symbols and texts, and relating to others.

Our resource page contains ideas to support you in celebrating Gagana Tokelauan Language Week with your students.
