Cook Islands Language Week Five Minute Quiz 2015

Kia orana!

This week is Te Epetoma o Te Reo Maori Kuki Airani – Cook Islands Māori language week. The theme of this week is ‘Te tatou reo tupuna e korona ia no to tatou matakeinanga’; Our language is a crowning glory of our community.

Te Papa’s Pacific Cultures collections have over 7000 artefacts associated with the Cook Islands including art works, drums, vaka and tīvaevae. Twenty four tīvaevae from our extensive collection is currently on display in the exhibition Tivaevae: Out of the Glory Box on Level 5, Ngā Toi Arts Te Papa.

To celebrate Te Epetoma o Te Reo Maori Kuki Airani the Pacific Cultures Team bring you the Cook Islands edition of the five minute quiz. We have picked some great examples from our Cook Islands collection to help you brush up on your language skills and test your knowledge of the Cook Islands.
