What is Matariki?
Matariki is a group of 7 stars. It is also the Maori new year. When I look up in the sky I can see the 7 stars. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. We make kites and weave flax. We grow crops. Also we forgive people who have made us sad. We learn about how the Maori people used the stars to find their way around the place.
