Ngā Kanohi o Matariki: Faces of Matariki

This is a bilingual poster with the names and meanings of the stars in the Matariki cluster: Waipunarangi, Ururangi, Matariki, Tupuārangi, Tupuānuku, Hiwa-i-te-rangi, Waitī, Waitā and Pōhutukawa. Seven names were given by Hamiora Pio of Ngāti Awa for stars in the cluster. The different names of the stars are significant for Māori, as each individual has a defined purpose and is intrinsically connected with the Māori world. Their unique roles are explained in this poster. The illustrations personifying the stars are by Te Haunui Tuna.
