Matariki calendar 2016/2017 for Dynaspeak and Te Wananga o Aotearoa

Illustrated by Emilie Geant

“The rising of the constellation of Matariki in the month of June signals to the people of Polynesia, settled across vast expanses of Oceania, that a new cycle has begun. In New Zealand, Maori developed a sophisticated culture adapted to the climate and conditions they discovered following organised migrations in large doubled hulled ocean-going waka to reach Aotearoa. Using traditional knowledge, with the stars and other natural signs to guide them, the master navigators of Polynesia preceded the great European explorers by several centuries.

This year’s calendar reflects upon the extraordinary events of exploration, discovery, migration, settlement and cultural exchange that bought the development of Aotearoa New Zealand as a nation of different people.”

Matariki Calendar for Dynaspeak

2015/2016 Matariki calendar for Dynaspeak

Illustrated by Emilie Geant

The Maori new year is marked in June by the appearance of the constellation Matarki (or pleiades) and celebrates Matariki throughout the year as we mark more than 200 years of cultural exchange between Aotearoa New Zealand and France.

“Matariki is a time to treasure relationships. The great French navigator Jean Francois De Surville made landfall in Aotearoa and met Maori French chiefs in 1769, beginning a long exchange between France and New Zealand. Early French explorers, naturalists, artists and pioneer missionaries were folloed by settlers and entrepreneurs, winemakers and rygby players, visitors and scholars – a broad diversity of interests links our people today. From Gallipolli to the Western Front, through the Second World War, to peacekeeping operations around the world, our two people have stood together.”   Dynaspeak website
