Shooting Stars

Have you ever looked up at the night sky and gazed at seven stars? You might have seen Matariki.
Matariki is the Maori New Year. Matariki comes in late May or early June and then disappears in late April in Aotearoa. There is another name for Matatiki and that is the seven sisters.
There are many different ways to celebrate Matariki. You could build colourful kites with your family and fly them around or you could go to your local beach and go fishing on the wharf, if it has one. Also, you might tell stories around the camp fire.
So please look up into the dark, night sky and look for Matariki.
