What is Matariki?
Matariki is a group of seven stars. The seven stars disappear in late April. They come back in early June and it is the new year. The seven stars are also named the 7 sisters. When the crops grow the stars are brightly shining. We gather seafood. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. We catch some kai moana. We fly and make kites. The people also weave flax.
