KUPU WHAKATAKI / INTRODUCTION
Ko te ahurei o Matariki te kaupapa whakahirahira ki Tāmaki Makaurau e whakanui ana i te tau hou Māori. Koinei te tino ahurei o te takurua e āhei ana te titiro ki ngā pūrākau, whakangahau, kōrero, whakaari, kai, toi hoki.
Matariki Festival heralds the Māori New Year in Tāmaki Makaurau. It is New Zealand’s premier Māori Winter Festival that provides a window into Te Ao Māori through stories, entertainment, discussions, performance, food and art.
Mā te ahurei ka tūhono ngā hapori katoa ki te whakamahara, ki te whai whakaaro, ki te whakanui hoki i ngā tikanga e pā ana ki a Matariki.
The festival provides an opportunity to create an environment where communities can come together to reflect and celebrate our unique tikanga Māori in relation to the season of Matariki.
Ka tū te ahurei i te 22 o Pipiri ki 14 o Hōngongoi, 2019.
