About the event

Matariki heralds the new year in the Maori lunar calendar. It is a time to reflect on the past year, celebrate the present, and plan for the year ahead. As we continue to navigate our understanding of Matariki, we also reconnect with our environment and our responsibilities and empower intergenerational enlightenment in accordance with Matariki. 

Te Whare Taonga o Te Tairawhiti is delighted to welcome Dr Rangi Matamua, who will share his profound insights on living by the stars and illuminate the significance of Matariki. They extend a warm invitation to seize this extrodanary opportunity to deepen your understanding of Matariki. Nau mai, haere mai e hika ma!
