Te Paki o Matariki

The Māori language newspaper Te Paki o Matariki, meaning the fine weather of Matariki, was the official newspaper of the Kīngitanga (Māori King movement). The crest on the newspaper is an adaptation of the coat of arms of the Kīngitanga, designed by Tīwai Parāone of Hauraki and Te Aokatoa of Waikato and Ngāti Raukawa.
