Matariki is the name of the cluster Pleiades in Te Reo Māori and the season when it first rises.
In traditional times it was a season to celebrate, to prepare the ground for the coming year, to learn and hold wananga on times past .
In this programme students will learn more about Matariki of long ago and why it is relevant for today. Through technology in the Te Aka Mauri Makerspace they will discover more about this important time of year for Aotearoa.
