Heralded by the rising of the star constellation known as Matariki, the Māori New Year is an important time for connecting with and giving thanks to the land, sea and sky.
Matariki is an ideal time to appreciate, understand and teach others about our Māori heritage.
Auckland Libraries has organised an extensive programme of events that provides a variety of opportunities to deepen our knowledge and understanding, including talks about Māori traditional medicine, kapa haka performances and special events for children.
