The annual Māori Language Awards have been held every year since 2004. It’s a way we can join with our partners across Te Whare o te Reo Mauriora to honour amazing people and unforgettable projects that are helping to revitalise te reo Māori. 

What's happening?

In 2020, due to Covid-19, we canceled our annual Ngā Tohu Reo Māori event and instead celebrated more than 1 million language champions from across Aotearoa and around the world who made history with the Māori Language Moment | Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori. 

Every person who took part in the historic Māori Language Moment 2020 became a joint winner of the Supreme 2020 Māori Language Award. See some highlights here.
