This event has passed.

Expert talk

Over the past 30 years there has been a massive surge of interest around Matariki. Throughout mid-winter, events and celebrations take place across the country to pay homage to this star cluster.

However, what is often missing from our modern observation of Matariki is any acknowledgement of its traditional practice. In this talk, Dr Rangi Matamua will highlight some of the central Māori beliefs and customs associated with Matariki to grow our understanding of its role in our modern society.
