Hawke's Bay Inspector Hirone Waretini and Constable Phillipa Smith have been visiting local schools to promote Maori Language Week - Hawke's Bay Police style.
Every day of this working week one of Hawke's Bay's finest will post a video message with Te Kupu o Te Ra or the "word of the day" that can be used in your every day conversations.
No reira, karanga mai, whakatau mai, nau mai haere mai ki te Wiki o Te Reo Maori o nga Pirihimana o te rohe o te Kahungunu Whanui! Tihei mauri ora!
