Deaf Aotearoa have created an awesome challenge for NZSL Week where they are asking everyone to learn to sign "Pepeha", Six60's beautiful waiata, in NZSL.

New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL) is one of New Zealand's three official languages through the New Zealand Sign Language Act 2006.


NZSL is a beautiful and expressive language that is used by the Deaf community. But anyone can learn!  As more New Zealanders learn to sign the more accessible and inclusive our society will become.
