This week celebrates Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori, an initiative intended to encourage New Zealanders to promote the use of the Māori language, which, along with New Zealand Sign Language, is an official language of the country. 


This week, Zazi speaks to Dr. Daniel Carl Henare Hikuroa, a senior lecturer at the University of Auckland, who talks about his journey with Te Reo Māori, how he was introduced to it and why he finds it so important. He also talks about the name of this country, and whether New Zealand best describes the people living within it.
