Story: Te orokohanga mai o te ao

‘Te Matariki’

‘Te Matariki’

Nā Brett Graham tēnei mahi toi, e kōrero ana mō te orokohanga, te tipu me te mātauranga. Ko Matariki tērā e whetū rā tōna āhua. Hei te marama o Hune ka roko marewa ia i te rangi. Koinei te tohu a te Māori mō te tau hōu. Ka kōrero anō te āhua nei mō te tipu kei te pihi ake, he tohu ki te tipu me te rapu i te mātauranga. Ka kōrero te arawhata mō te kakenga a Tāne i ngā rangi ngahuru mā rua kia tiki i ngā kete o te mātauranga.
