Matariki

During this week of languages I have learnt more about Matariki.
Here is a bit of Matariki information I have learnt.

Matariki is a new year celebration. Matariki has two different meanings; tiny eyes and eyes of God.

People celebrate Matariki in many different ways. The reason why we celebrate Matariki is guiding our unique place in which we live and giving respect to the land we live on.

Matariki is the stars that are high above and which means ‘ The Seven Sisters’.
Matariki is one of the most important things on earth; it’s a new beginning of Aotearoa Pacific. Matariki is a new year celebration.
