Matariki on the Move: Kōrero

Join renowned Māori astronomer Dr Rangi Matamua, maramataka Māori expert Rereata Makiha and master navigator Hoturoa Kerr for one night only, as they share their mātauranga (knowledge) and passion for Māori astronomy.

With extensive knowledge of the maramataka (lunar calendar), celestial navigation and the Matariki star cluster, this is a unique opportunity to hear from three tohunga (experts) in person. Learn about Matariki as well as other stars and celestial bodies – how they guided the traditional way of life for many Māori throughout Aotearoa in days gone by and their continuing importance in today’s modern world. A great way to expand your knowledge of Matariki and broaden horizons. Spaces are limited, booking essential.
