REMINDER; Matariki Dawn Karakia Ceremony, June 10th
In 2016, Ngaati Paoa had the privilege of hosting the Matariki Festival in partnership with Auckland Council.
This year the hosting is with our whanaunga from Ngaati Manuhiri - the highlight being the Dawn Karakia Ceremony at Taawharanui on Saturday June 10th.
Let's get in behind and support our whanaunga for what will be a very special event.

Tena koutou nga uri a Paoa
Last year Ngaati Paoa had the honour of hosting the inaugural Matariki celebrations in partnership with Auckland Council.
It was a great opportunity to share our stories and a way to raise the profile of mana whenua within the Taamaki area.
This year it is the role of our whanaunga, Ngaati Manuhiri, to host the 2017 event.
For Ngaati Paoa, our role is to be involved in the hand over of Matariki to this year's hosts, and there are two key dates as part of that hand over.
