Matariki - Maori New Year

Hi there

It's Matariki, the Maori New Year.  Mid-winter.  Matariki is a time to remember ancestors, store crops, gather fish, give thanks.  'Matariki' star system (the Pleiades) shines once a year in the heavens above Aotearoa (New Zealand).  Over the last couple of decades, Matariki has become widely recognised as a time for celebration.  There are exhibitions, shows, many occasions to honour Matariki
Below is a link to tell about Matariki
