“When the constellation of stars known to Māori as Matariki rises it marks the winter solstice, or the longest night. This signifies the end of the old year and beginning of the new. For Māori it is a time of harvest, coming together, remembrance and celebration. It is a time to plan for the future a look ahead to what the new year brings. We celebrate Matariki because it is an integral part of all of us. For more information on Matariki watch the videos in 3 parts below”
