Ngāti Toa legend says that Matariki and her daughters – the seven stars of Matariki – cross the sky every winter to gather around their grandmother Papatūānuku. This meeting of whānau allows them to reflect on the past year, plan for the next, and work on their individual contributions to the world.

Share in storytelling and experience the rising of the Matariki, or Pleiades, star cluster in our brand-new digital planetarium. Visit Te Marae and engage with selected handling objects.
