Celebrate the Maori New Year with the original and ever-popular Matariki Calendar. Te Papa's Matariki Calendar is the perfect way to celebrate Matariki, the Maori New Year - a time of great festivity around New Zealand. This vibrant bilingual calendar runs from June 2011, when the star formation Matariki (the Pleiades) appears in the sky, to May 2012. Matariki is a time to reflect on the land's rhythms and how to protect and sustain resources. Traditionally, each Maori tribe had its own Matariki lore, which taught people how to live in balance with nature. The Matariki Calendar highlights the relevance of these principles today. Appealing to all ages, it features images of Te Papa's precious taonga (treasures), contemporary Maori life, and our beautiful country through the seasons.
