Matariki is a time when we celebrate the unique place in which we live and give respect to the land we live on. It is celebrated with education, remembrance and the planting of new trees and crops signalling new beginnings. Matariki was the optimum time for new harvests, and ceremonial offerings to the land-based gods Rongo, Uenuku and Whiro to ensure good crops for the coming year. It was also seen as a perfect time to learn about the land and to remember whakapapa (ancestry) who have passed from this world to the next and the legacy they left behind.
