Each May, Deaf Aotearoa New Zealand organises NZSL Week - a celebration of one of the country's official languages, New Zealand Sign Language (NZSL).  The week is a platform for the Deaf community to stand proud as Deaf and promote their language and culture.  NZSL Week also gives Deaf Aotearoa an opportunity to reaffirm the rights of Deaf people as defined by the UN's Convention of Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
