Whainga ako: understanding your ideas about Matariki.

  1. What does Matariki mean to you?            

Matariki to me means the maori new year and the time to celebrate the time of growth.

  1. How do you celebrate Matariki?

I celebrate matariki by cooking big kai’s for the whanau.

Yes. My reason why is because when maori needed kai they could rely on the seven stars to give them a sign when to plant kai.

I don’t know how to.
