Maori is important to New Zealand.Maori is important to New Zealand. It is from here in NZ. We need to protect the Maori language. If we can keep it going for now and try to keep alive, the Maori language might just stay on this planet. It is up to us, Kiwis to keep this amazing language alive. If we can all particapate in this Maori week every year we might just do it.
