The United Nations has declared 2019 as the International Year of Indigenous Languages. To celebrate, for each month this year, you’re invited to view greetings for different languages.

For August, we feature the languages Maori and Polish:


Nau mai e nga mana reo o te ao.
Na matau nga iwi taketake o Aotearoa

Greetings to all the Indigenous Languages of the World.
From the people of Aotearoa New Zealand.


Na dzien dzisiejszy i jego bfogos-t’awienstwa zawdzi czam swiatu postawie wdzi cznosci

For today and its blessings, I owe the world an attitude of gratitude.
