Matariki Calendar 

Matariki Calendar

Order from Te Papa Press

Track the year as never before with this bright, informative calendar, based on the mid-winter festival of Matariki.

Traditionally, the Māori New Year was born in the depths of winter – a time for rest and reflection around the family hearth. The reappearance of the star cluster Matariki (The Seven Sisters) above the dawn horizon signalled this special time.

Te Papa’s Matariki Maramataka runs from June 2013 through to May 2014. It’s packed with beautiful imagery, stories, and proverbs about living in balance with the natural world. What better way to reconnect with this ancient and increasingly popular New Zealand festival!
