Matariki / Māori New Year

Image

The Pleiades / Matariki rise July 13-16 2020, marking the beginning of the Māori New Year in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Matariki is a shortened version of Ngā mata o te ariki o Tāwhirimātea, or ‘the eyes of the god of wind, Tāwhirimātea’. In the Māori language, Matariki is both the name of the Pleiades star cluster and also of the season of its first rising.
