Tongan Language Week 2019

Mālō e lelei whānau,

Come celebrate Uike Kātoanga’i ‘o e Lea Faka-Tonga, Tongan Language Week 2019 with Unitec Library.

The theme for this year is: Fakakoloa 'o Aotearoa 'aki 'a e Tauhi Fonua - A Tongan Perspective of Enriching Aotearoa, New Zealand.

This will run from Sunday 1 September - Saturday 7 September 2019. Also known as the 'Friendly Islands' the Kingdom of Tonga is divided into three main groups - Vava'u, Ha'apai and Tongatapu islands. Tongans are the third largest Pacific community in Aotearoa and the Tongan language is a central feature of the culture and identity.

Unitec Library has resources both in print and electronic to help you learn and become familiar in Tongan Language. Check out the Unitec Library catalogue and our Pacific subject guide.

Come in and see our displays at Te Puna and Waitākere Library.
