Matariki waiata (song)

Sing this Matariki waiata with your tamariki and learn the names of the seven Matariki stars.

Ngā Tamariki o Matariki

Waitī, Waitā, Waipunarangi,

Tupu-ā-nuku, Tupu-ā-rangi, Ururangi e

Koinei ngā tamariki o Matariki
(These are the children of Matariki)

Ngā whetū e pīataata i te rangi e
(The bright stars that shine in the sky)

Ngā whetū e pīataata i te rangi e
(The bright stars that shine in the sky)

Kaitito waiata (composer): Erana Hemmingsen
