Mālo ni!!! 🇹🇰

It’s Tokelau Language week! Our friends at Ministry for Pacific Peoples released this years poster! 

This years theme is: “Apoapo tau foe, i nā tāfea i te galutau. Ke mau mai, ke mau mai” which in English means “Never give up hope, even amidst chaos and much uncertainty. 

This years theme was influenced by the difficult waters we’ve navigated since COVID-19 has reached our shores. 

Remember to the official New Zealand Tokelau Language Week 2020 .

Te vaiaho o te gagana Tokelau | Tokelau Language Week begins this Sunday 25 October, and runs through to Saturday 31 October.

This years theme is: “Apoapo tau foe, i nā tāfea i te galutau. Ke mau mai, ke mau mai” which in English means “Never give up hope, even amidst chaos and much uncertainty. Stay united, stay strong.” Influenced by the events of 2020 and how the COVID-19 outbreak has shaped a new norm for the Tokelau community and everyone worldwide.
