Our language weeks

The Ministry for Pacific People’s Pacific Language Weeks are celebrated at AUT each year as an opportunity to acknowledge the diverse Pacific cultures at the University.

AUT gives a platform throughout the different weeks to allow those languages to be promoted through language debates, cultural workshops, speech competitions, Pacific cuisine and different sporting events. Each language week has opportunities targeted towards better celebrating their culture. 

The dates for the seven Pacific Language Weeks in 2017 are below:

Samoa: Sunday 28 May – Saturday 3 June 2017

Cook Islands: Sunday 30 July – Saturday 5 August 2017

Tonga: Sunday 3 September – Saturday 9 September 2017

Fiji: Sunday 8 October – Saturday 14 October 2017

Niue: Sunday 15 October – Saturday 21 October 2017

Our Pacific language weeks highlight the contribution the Pacific culture adds to New Zealand’s culture as a whole.
