The re-appearance of the Matariki star cluster – the Pleiades or Seven Sisters – in late May or early June signals the start of the Maori New Year. The two meanings of Matariki both refer to stars, Mata Ariki (eyes of God) and Mata Riki (little eyes). It is a time of renewal and celebration in Aotearoa (New Zealand).
