New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) Resources

Order your kawhe in NZSL & Māori!

Te Wiki o te Reo Māori, Māori Language Week, has arrived! Deaf Aotearoa takes immense pride in supporting and celebrating te reo Māori. We are thrilled to collaborate with Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori to commemorate this occasion by producing a trilingual resource. Now, you can order your kawhe in Aotearoa’s two official languages!

Kia kaha te reo Māori!
