Matariki 2021 – Kaikōhau – now available in 40+ languages

For Matariki, Reo Māori are encouraging everyone to learn a kaikōhau.

Kaikōhau means to express your hopes and desires. It’s something that you can use during Matariki, as we prepare for the new year ahead, and any other time throughout the year.

Reo Māori have now translated this special kaikōhau into 40+ languages so that all of us can connect to our ancestors this Matariki. Reo Māori are adding more languages as they go, so let them know if we can add yours.

Head on over to to start learning in te reo Māori as well as the language of your ancestors.

Share your kaikōhau by posting to their our moments wall or on social media by using the hashtag #kaikōhau and tagging us @reomaori.

They will be keeping an eye out on your posts as they have some limited edition Matariki hoodies to giveaway, so don’t forget to share and tag them!

Ākona te reo, e hoa mā!
