2021 Event Season

Matariki on the Move: Korero

Join renowned Maori astronomer Dr Rangi Matamua, maramataka Maori expert Rereata Makiha and master navigator Hoturoa Kerr for one night only, as they share their matauranga (knowledge) and passion for Maori astronomy.

With extensive knowledge of the maramataka (lunar calendar), celestial navigation and the Matariki star cluster, this is a unique opportunity to hear from three tohunga (experts) in person. Learn about Matariki as well as other stars and celestial bodies – how they guided the traditional way of life for many Maori throughout Aotearoa in days gone by and their continuing importance in today’s modern world. A great way to expand your knowledge of Matariki and broaden horizons.
