The Facebook winner is Tumohe. Matariki means:

Whanau, celebration, hakari, whanaungatanga, wairua, Aroha, and maintaining the gifts handed down to us by our tupuna:)

Blog

The winner on the blog is Gallivanta:

Matariki means it’s my mother’s birthday. I love the connection of her birth with the arrival of Matariki. Apart from that, Matariki is a time for me to reflect on how much I have yet to learn about Aotearoa.

Congratulations! We will be in contact soon – your prize is a Kobo Glo eReader each.

Thanks to you all for sharing your lovely Matariki thoughts.

If you want more Matariki fun, don’t forget to go to Rehua Marae, 79 Springfield Road,  St Albans tomorrow Saturday 27 June – 10am to 3pm. See Rehua Marae’s Facebook page.
