What is Matariki?
In the sky you will see the 7 Maori new year stars. They disappear in late April and they come back in late May or early June when it is the Maori new year. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. Learning about how the Maori people used the stars to find their way around. We forgive and forget people who have made us sad. We tell stories from the past and weave flax.
