Matariki, the ‘Māori New Year’, is a celebration unique to New Zealand. Around the country, Matariki is a time of great festivity as well as reflection and planning for the year to come.
Te Papa’s Matariki Maramataka is packed full of proverbs and körero that celebrate and revive Māori principles of living in balance with the natural world. The calendar runs from June, when the star formation known as Matariki (the Pleiades) officially appears in the sky, through to May 2013. Featured are images of Māori taonga (cultural treasures), activities from contemporary Māori life, and beautiful scenes of New Zealand through the seasons.
