Tags: Mātauranga Māori, matariki

What might we do to celebrate Matariki?

Join Anahera McGregor and Jamie Taylor as they kōrero about what Matariki means to them, and what their plans are to observe the holiday.

Jamie and Anahera both share that this Matariki they plan to reflect on the past year, to give thanks for what they have, and look forward with hope for the new year. They also share how connecting with whānau and waking up early to view Matariki rise are two fulfilling Matariki activities they look forward to.

In this kōrero they also touch on how Matariki offers a unique opportunity to relax, be still, ground yourself and heal, so that you can continue to carry out important kaupapa in the next year.
