Magical Matariki


What is Matariki?

Matariki is a new year for the Maori and the 7 stars. The 7 stars come back again in late May or early June. It is time to celebrate and it means it's the Maori new year. Have you ever seen the 7 stars in the night sky? They are called the 7 sisters. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways, like flying and making kites. When the 7 stars are light and bright we forgive and forget.
