Matariki is a name in Maori for a cluster of stars  known as the seven sisters. Originally the tradition  was to celebrate the time of life and death. It also is a sighting of the next new moon. Maori celebrated the tradition at different times but it usually started at dawn when the sun rose. The festival would then start. Martariki means the eyes of god and it continues as a celebration of a myth.                    Martariki
