Community poster

This year’s Tokelau Language Week poster was developed by the Ministry with language assistance provided by the Tokelau Wellington Leadership Group.  We commissioned the assistance of Vaitoa Baker, a Porirua based Tokelau illustrator and graphics designer, and accessed the photograph from Theresa Kele, of Tokelau descent who works at the National Library of New Zealand Te Puna Matauranga o Aotearoa. The 2018 poster will be available soon.
