Matariki


Last week we were studying about Matariki. Matariki is celebrated during the winter solstice. Matariki means 'eyes of god' or 'little eyes'. The Maori New Year starts when the new moon rises. The Matariki stars are bigger and brighter than the other stars. It is a great time to harvest crop and collect seafood. Some people celebrate Matariki by spending time with family.
