A bunch of amazing Kiwis are taking to social media to display their knowledge of te reo.

It’s all part of Māori Language Week, where te reo is getting the recognition it deserves.

Shortland Street actress Ngahuia Piripi shared a cute snap of her in a traditional kapa haka outfit with the hashtags “#proud #maori #pukanaemoji

Te wiki o te reo Māori! Ask me something in māori and I'll answer . #proud #maori #pukanaemoji #tb

TVNZ’s Sunday host Miriama Kamo is spreading the te reo love on Twitter.

Of course, The Hits crew, Sarah, Sam, and Toni are excited about reading Stace and Scotty Morrison’s new book, Maori At Home.

And so is singer Anika Moa!

Lotto host Sonia Grey filmed with her family to celebrate, “filming with the whanau!”
