Maori delegation visit to TCD

Our School was delighted to host a special research seminar for the visit to TCD by New Zealand Te Panekiretanga - The Institute of Excellence in Māori Language, a relationship forged through Aoife Finn's PhD research on the syntax of the Māori dialect te reo. Much like the Irish language, te reo is spoken by only a minority of the indigenous people. The delegation's visit to Ireland is part of a European trip to examine indigenous language revitalization strategies, with an itinerary that also includes Scotland, Wales and the Basque country. The delegation was introduced by Professor Tīmoti Kāretu - the first Māori Language Commissioner (1987-1999), Executive Director of Te Panekiretanga, Chairperson for Te Kōhanga Reo National Trust.
