    Title: Matariki: The Star of the Year

    In midwinter, Matariki rises in the pre-dawn sky, and its observation is celebrated with incantations on hilltops of dawn, balls, exhibitions, dinners and a vast number of events. The Matariki tradition has been re-established, and its regeneration coincides with a growing interest in Maori astronomy. Still, there remain some unanswered questions about how Matariki was traditionally observed.

    What is Matariki?
    Why did Maori observe Matariki?
    How did Maori traditionally celebrate Matariki?
    When and how should Matariki be celebrated?

    This book seeks answers to these questions and explores what Matariki was in a traditional sense so it can be understood and celebrated in our modern society.
