Nau mai, haere mai – you are warmly invited to a ritual for the whole whānau (family) to mark the arrival of Matariki, the Māori New Year.
During the evening, we:
- celebrate the people (tangata), and earth, sea, and sky (whenua)
- mark the beginning of Matariki
- hear stories of renewal.
In the case of wet weather, the event will be moved indoors.
