In the lead up to Tuvalu’s Independence Day this weekend, diplomats from Tuvalu’s High Commission in Wellington have been actively contributing to the celebration of Tuvalu Language Week in New Zealand! The theme for this year’s Language Week is Fakamautu ke mautakitaki te Gagana Tuvalu mo te atafai, fakaaloalo mo te amanaiagina, which has been translated as “nurture with sustainability the Tuvalu language with care, respect and dignity”! The Ministry congratulates the High Commission on supporting the Tuvalu community in New Zealand during this important event and thanks the Tuvalu diaspora in New Zealand for contributing to the Language Week celebrations!
