Magical Mataiki

What is Matariki?

Matariki is the group of 7 stars of the Maori new year. At the end of April the stars disappear. They come back again in late May and it is the start of Maori new year. The seven stars are known as the seven sisters. The oldest sister guides her sisters to follow her. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. The Maori people catch fish kai moana and make kites. They also weave flax and tell stories from the past.
