WALT: explain the Maori contribution to time.

Matariki is a time to celebrate their festival.  Matariki were filled with food.  Matariki is a group of seven stars.  It reappears at the beginning of June.  Matariki disappeared from view.  When the new moon appears at the evening sky.  It sign that the Maori New year and they also called Matariki.

Kereru was snared and preserved in fat.  People were gathered together during Matariki to winter months.    To remember the past and plan for the New year.  
The people were remembering those people that who came before us.  They had left them behind.

Matariki was a time to bountiful they catches with the fish.  Matariki celebrates their own family.  Like they are celebrating their own country.  Celebrating their own festival is very important.  Because if you don’t celebrate your own family.
Then your family will have a broken heart.

Breaking other peoples heart makes them don’t smile or don't eat.  But if you celebrate your family then they will be happy.  Then the family will be happy.  Celebrating with your family is very important.     Because it is very interesting for the festival.
