Te Puna o te Kī is a biennial open-subject conference with te reo Māori as the sole language of delivery and discussion. It was established in 2013 and was the first of its kind. Te Puna o te Kī is part of a wider movement to normalise the Māori language in different contexts. It provides an avenue for researchers to present their work in te reo Māori regardless of which field they are in.
The next conference is scheduled for December 2017, and we hope to build on the amazing presentations and discussions which have taken place at the previous two conferences, including subject areas such as marine biology, medicine, mental health, sport and nutrition, law, politics, music, art, and of course, language revitalisation.
