Join our Matariki moment

Mānawatia a Matariki
Celebrate Matariki

 

Matariki rises in early July 2021 marking the beginning of the Māori New Year. To celebrate, we invite you to organise a Matariki moment.

 

Invite your whānau and friends to share kai (or virtually share kai if you are not able to be together) and learn a kaikōhau (expression of hope) in the language of Aotearoa as well as the languages of your ancestors.
