Back by popular demand, this event celebrates and showcases Māori excellence and the relationship between the tangata whenua and the land, sea and sky through music, korero, film and kai with TWO events.

Special guest speaker Hoturoa Barclay-Kerr (Tainui) is one of this country’s leading exponents of waka and a revivalist of ocean sailing by celestial navigation on waka hourua (double-hulled canoe). He is the Manager of the Marine Unit (Te Wananga o Aotearoa) and retired kaihautu/captain of the voyaging waka Haunui. Hoturoa will share footage & tales of adventure on the high seas in a Q & A hosted by musician Moana Maniapoto (Ngati Tuwharetoa/Ngati Pikiao/Tuhourangi). Guests will dine on an organic indigenous fusion menu created and prepared by popular westie ‘indigi-foodie’ John Panoho (Ngati Whatua/Ngapuhi).

The Matariki Concert will showcase the diverse nature of Maori music. Moana & the Tribe play a last NZ concert before heading up to Norways Arctic Circle to kickstart their International Tour. This 8-piece band will take their infectious blend of ‘passion & politics groove’ to Sziget (Budapest), recently voted Best European Festival. Swamp Thing are Grant Haua (Ngati Ranginui/Ngati Pukenga) and Michael Barker (Ngati Ranginui), the duo wowing audiences across Australia with their blues flavoured music and soulful spook. Local westies, reggae buffs and ‘proud dads’ Jah-maara will round out Saturday night with their 6-piece band.

Film and television writer/director Michael Bennett (Te Arawa) has been involved with some of New Zealand’s favourite TV dramas, including Street Legal, Mercy Peak and Outrageous Fortune. He has written and directed two acclaimed shorts, Cow and Kerosene Creek, and penned the feature film Jubilee. In 2011, his first feature ‘Matariki’ won the International Festival of Independent Film (Belgium). Filmmaker & ‘Muriwaiian’ Aileen O’Sullivan examines his life in a Q&A with the Director on Sunday. Complementary wine/beer/nibbles. Cash bar. Screening organized by NextDoor Productions. Go to Matariki Magic Movies for ticket purchases on Eventfinda.
