Matariki is the ever-popular 'Maori New Year', and Te Papa's Matariki Maramataka is the perfect way to mark its beginning - as well as to celebrate New Zealand's unique indigenous culture and natural world all through the year. The calendar runs from June 2007, when the star formation known as Matariki (the Pleiades) officially appears in the sky, through to May 2007. It is packed full of proverbs and korero on the traditional Maori maramataka (yearly calendar) and is generously illustrated with as many as four pictures per month. Images include Te Papa's precious taonga, activities from contemporary Maori life and scenes of our beautiful country through the seasons. Around New Zealand, Matariki is a time of great festivity, as well as reflection and planning for the year to come. This calendar teaches people of all ages about life for traditional Maori life and their relationship with the natural world - as well as how to connect with Matariki in modern times.
