Tag: matariki


This week for mana ako we learnt about a star above the orion belt that is only visible in taranaki which is a star name puanga.The people in taranaki only look at puanaga because the stars of matariki are too low to be visible.We also learned about the lunar moon which i didn’t know exsisted.Whenever Paunga reveals to the school named ramanui they make hangi,pray,blessings and do a kapa haka performance.They call one of the koro’s to the school the Hangi-master that is pretty uncivilised because i think it is me.If you didn’t already know the maori new year (matariki) is when you take/plant crops because the growining season is almost over.
