Te Epetoma o te reo Māori Kūki ‘Āirani is a time of the year for Cook Islanders living throughout Niu Tireni (Aotearoa New Zealand) to acknowledge, celebrate and embrace the culture, history and most importantly, the reo (language) of the Cook Islands.

Our city, Tāmaki Makaurau, has the largest Pacific population in the world, with just over 35,000 people proudly identifying as being Cook Islanders. It is for this reason that Auckland Libraries is delighted to connect with our Cook Islands community and celebrate the pearl of the Pacific.
Kiaorana e Kia Manuia!
