Tokelau Language Week

Sunday 23/10/2022

Vāiaho o te Gagana Tokelau recognises the importance of upholding the language of Tokelau and for Kiwis with Tokelauan roots to remain connected to the culture. And of course you don't have to be from Tokelau to celebrate the week. Take the time to learn some basic greetings or to extend your knowledge of Tokelau. The theme for 2022 is "Halahala ki vavau, kae ke mau ki pale o Tokelau" meaning "To plan for the future is to understand the past" and the Ministry for Pacific Peoples has resources to provide information for anyone keen to learn more. Keep up with the latest community events, information and resources on the NZ Tokelau Language Week Facebook page
