Nau mai, haere mai – you are warmly invited to a ritual for the whole whānauwhānau family to mark the arrival of Matariki, the Māori New Year.

Join us for the lighting of a ritual fire, listen to stories of renewal, and celebrate the start of a new year.

The ritual will also mark the beginning of the Matariki Rising Festival at Te Papa, 15–24 June 2018.

During the evening, we:
- celebrate the people (tangata), and earth, sea, and sky (whenua)
- mark the beginning of Matariki
- hear stories of renewal.

Entrance through Red Gates, to the left of the main entrance. If weather is bad the ritual will move inside.
