Looking for Matariki - Matariki Te Whetū o te Tau

How can I find Matariki?

We continue our journey of learning and exploration about Matariki in the third podcast of our Matariki Te Whetū o te Tau soundbite podcast series.

In this podcast, Dr Rangi Matamua explains how you can find the cluster of stars called Matariki in New Zealand. Dr Matamua also explains how Māori used Matariki as a way to tell months and seasons, as well as some of the activities associated with these markers in the sky. This podcast also discusses the lunar calendar and how it was used in te ao Māori.
