While Matariki is celebrated by many iwi across Aotearoa to mark the Māori New Year, Kāi Tahu in Te Waipounamu also celebrates Puaka/Puanga. Puaka is the brightest star in the Orion
constellation and is more visible than Matariki here in Hakatere Ashburton.

Over the July school holidays, we are inviting tamariki and rangatahi to make their own whetū to celebrate Puaka.
