About this event

In 2022, Matariki will become the first annual public holiday to celebrate a significant Māori event.

In this presentation you will gain an understanding of the signs and symbols leading up to the rise of Matariki which marks the beginning of the Māori new year.

Tutor Drina Paratene (Ngāti Whātua ki te Kaipara, Ngāti Pāoa and Ngāti Awa) teaches Te Reo at Green Bay High School, and has an extensive mātauranga Māori background.
