Matariki stars in the pre-dawn sky herald a special celebration. Across New Zealand, people come together to remember their ancestors, share food, sing, tell stories, and play music – this is a time of looking back, of looking within, and of looking forward.
This Ngaio Union Church will celebrate Matariki right here in Ngaio from 12th to 25th July. They have four events to come to, and heaps of other activities to make this a special time of yea
