Samoa Language Week / Vaiaso o le Gagana Samoa is being held in 2021 from Sunday 30 May to Saturday 5 June 2021.
Gagana Samoa is the third most spoken language across New Zealand.
We have two events running at our libraries during the week:

Samoa Language Week celebrates the identity, language, and culture of our whanau from Samoa. This special week helps all New Zealanders journey towards shared cultural understandings.
