He Kōrero mō Matariki

Ko Matariki te ingoa mō te kāhui whetū e mōhiotia nei e te ao whānui ko Pleiades – ka taea te kitea e koe mai i hea nei o te ao.

Ko te rerenga o te kāhui whetū o Matariki i te rangi, he tohu nui o te maramataka Māori - he kaikōkiri nei ia o te Tau Hou Māori.

I mua, ko ēnei whakanuitanga i te Tau Hou he take e huihui ai ngā hapori, ki te poroaki i te tau kua hipa me te aro atu ki te tau e heke mai nei. He wā hoki ia mō te kai, mō te kōrero, whakatau tikanga me te ngahau tahi.

Ko ēnei mahi whakanui i a Matariki he mea i takea mai i mua noa atu i te taenga mai a te Pākehā tae noa ki te Pakanga Tuarua o te Ao, ka memeha noa.

I te pūaotanga o tēnei rautau, ka oho mai anō ēnei tikanga hei whakanui i tō tātou ao motuhake, hei whakamānawa i te whenua, e whai pānga, e nohoa nei e tātou katoa. E haere tonu nei ēnei tikanga i roto i te Ahurei o Matariki o ēnei rā.
