Matariki ki Te Whenua Roa o Kahu is a collective effort by local communities, mana whenua, and matāwaka organizations in the Kaipātiki local board area. Our mission is to come together and acknowledge a special public holiday - Matariki; a time of reflection, honoring our ancestors, and preparing for the upcoming year. We present a platform for cultural engagement, education, and celebration, promoting inclusivity and unity among our diverse communities. Matariki ki Te Whenua Roa o Kahu will span over 11 days, beginning with a Hautapu ceremony at Te Kamaka Marae (Hato Petera college) on 11 July 2023, at 6am.

Over 11 days of the event series, community members of all ages and backgrounds are invited to participate in the lantern making workshops, volunteers planting day and much more.

The event series will conclude with a closing ceremony on 22 July at Te Kamaka Marae (Hato Petera) where Matariki lanterns prepared across various community centres and libraries will be showcased. Everyone is encouraged to join a community hikoi. Please assemble outside Northcote library with your lanterns from 5pm for the hikoi.
