On the International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples NZ National Commission for UNESCO Commissioner, Linda Faulkner travelled to Sydney | Gadigal to speak at a special celebratory event hosted by FIFA and the United Nations Humans Rights. The International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples is held every 9 August to spread awareness about the Indigenous population around the world and to protect their rights.
In celebration of the International Day of the World’s Indigenous People we look at how te reo Māori is preserved in the Aotearoa New Zealand Memory of the World Ngā Mahara o te Ao register.

The Aotearoa register seeks to identify items of documentary heritage which have national significance. It aims to bring the value and significance of documentary heritage to wider public notice, along with the work performed by libraries, archives and museums in preserving this valuable heritage.
