How can I observe Matariki as non-Māori?

In this Matariki podcast, Rochelle Savage and Stanley Sarkies, kōrero about how to honour Matariki from a pākehā and tauiwi perspective.

This kōrero begins with discussing Stanley’s journey into learning about te reo Māori, te Tiriti o Waitangi, and te ao Māori, where he acknowledges and explores the role of pākeha and non-Māori in Aotearoa as tiriti partners.

Stanley and Rochelle then go on to discuss how to appropriately commemorate Matariki as pākeha, where Stanley offers the guidance that you can observe the holiday in a way that makes sense to you, and that aligns with the kaupapa of Matariki.
