Matariki is the Māori name for the cluster of stars, that rises in midwinter and for many Māori, heralds the start of the new year.
For the first time in Aotearoa, it will officially be celebrated as a public holiday on the 24th of June 2022.
It is an opportunity for all people of Aotearoa to come together and reflect on the year that has passed, celebrate the present, and plan for the future.
