Mānawa maiea te putanga o Matariki
Mānawa maiea te ariki o te rangi
Mānawa maiea te Mātahi o te Tau.
Whano, whano
Haramai te oki ata huakirangi
Haumi e
Hui e
Tāiki e!

The rising of Matariki signifies Te Tau Hou Māori – the Māori New Year. It is a time of remembrance, hauora reset and whānau.

This year we are focusing on the stars who represent all forms of water to which we are charged with protecting. Our pepehā ‘Heretaunga Ararau, Heretaunga Haukūnui’ reminds us of waters’ great influence over our physical environment and the wellbeing of our people.

Ngāti Kahungunu celebrates and nurtures a relationship with the ocean and freshwater bodies as they provide physical sustenance and a connection to our tīpuna.

Stars

Waitī is the star of lakes, rivers, streams and fresh water.
Waitā is the star of salt water and represents our deep connection to the ocean.
Waipunarangi is the star of all the water that pools in the sky, like light rain and downpours.
