Some people think of Matariki as a mother star with six daughters, and it is often referred to as the Seven Sisters. 2. In years gone by, Matariki was an important marker in the harvest calendar. It would determine your crop for the coming season, and played an important part in nature’s cycle. The disappearance of Matariki in autumn signalled the time to gather and preserve crops. 3. Traditionally, Matariki was celebrated by gathering with whanau (family) and reflecting on the past. The festival’s connection to the stars provided an opportunity for families to remember their whakapapa (genealogy) and those ancestors who had passed away to the heavens. 4. Mata Riki means tiny eyes, and Mata Ariki means eyes of God. MENTAL FLOSS TIMES WORD puzzlE 7714 Win! Guylian Artisanal Belgian Chocolates Chocolates and comfort go hand in hand!
