Matariki (Māori New Year)

Matariki (Māori New Year)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
On Friday it was matariki day all so known as moari new year. To celebrate it we had events like; cooking, arts and craft, movie making and sport games. Everyone had a sirva to fill out to diatermia which event we would be in, I got picked in Arts and craft which was a lot of fun, We had to make stars. 

First we had to colour them, there were many interesting patters beautiful and neat patters. after we had finished colouring our stars we want panting for the background after that we cut the stars outline and glued it to our background.

*Your Highlights; My highlights from arts and craft would probably be panting the background for our stars, because you could be creative with it and add your own patterns and colours to it. My other highlight was sitting next to my friends and having a good time.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Sky; In the Māori language, Matariki is both the name of the Pleiades star cluster and also of the season of its first rising in late May or early June. This is a marker of the beginning of the new year. 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Should NZ celebrate this and why?: Yes, because matariki is the celebration of Māori new year, Māori's where the ones who own this land way before we were allowed to come to new zealand so it's right that we celebrate the new year of Māori's.
