Matariki is a time for remembrance, celebrating the present and looking to the future

How are you preparing for Matariki from June 21 - July 16? Māori advisor Chris Webber says 'gather, remember, share and plan' are principles inspired by Matariki that can be applied in our thinking as a public health whanau. As our own team does an annual 'reset', the spirit of collective energy, gratitude and connectedness can lift the fruits of our planning to new heights. Some useful links for Matariki can be found HERE.

This year on June 24, Aotearoa marks the festival for the first time with a public holiday as a commitment to ensure Mātauranga Māori is at the heart of the celebration, and to give everyone a chance to participate.

Check out some of the events being held across the motu HERE.

Nau mai i ngā hua, nau mai i ngā taonga, nau mai i te Mātahi o te tau!
Welcome the fruits of the year, welcome the many treasures, welcome the New Year!
