Magical Matariki

What is Matariki?

The 7 stars disappear in late April. The stars come back in early June. The stars are called the 7 sisters. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. The Maori people make kites to fly them in the sky made out of wood, flax or paper. We tell stories too. We catch fish and grow trees.
