Magical Matariki


What is Matariki?

Matariki is a group of seven stars and the Maori new year. In late April the Matariki stars disappear from the sky. They come back in late May. Matariki is the oldest star. She guides her six sisters. We can celebrate Matariki. We can fly kites and make kites. We forgive and forget people who have made us sad. In matariki we learn about how the Maori people used the stars to find their way home. We can catch fish.
