Mānawatia A Matariki: Celebrate Matariki – With Whakaata Māori

The first national observance of a tikanga Māori event will be marked by a full day of Matariki themed programming on Whakaata Māori.

The special live broadcast will begin at 6.00 AM on Friday 24 June 2022.

Hosted by Stacey Morrison and Mātai Smith, WHAKAMANAWATIA A MATARIKI is a five hour programme, funded by Te Māngai Pāho and NZ On Air, that commences with a traditional Hautapu ceremony, broadcast from Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellngton

The hautapu ceremony is followed by an address from the Prime Minister.

The programme includes commentary and panel discussions based on the three themes of Matariki.: Reflect. Celebrate. Reset. There are also live music performances from leading and emerging artists, with each song introduced and explained by our hosts.

Whakaata Māori Tāhuhu Rangapū, Shane Taurima, said the first official, national celebration of Matariki was an historic day for Aotearoa.

“Matariki has always been a time of huge cultural and social significance in the maramataka Māori – the Māori calendar, but to have it now recognised and observed by all of Aotearoa is something truly special,” said Shane Taurima.

Other programming on Whakaata Māori includes the hugely popular series BEYOND MATARIKI, short films, feature films and documentaries, including the long awaited music doco LEGACY – the story of one of the great reggae bands of Aotearoa, as they struggle to find their way through volatile creative differences and a changing music landscape.

The full Whakaata Māori Matariki programme schedule is:

Gordon Campbell: On The Roe v Wade Aftermath


Now that the right of US women to abortion (formerly protected by Roe v Wade) has been abolished, the important role of medication-induced abortion will come even more to the fore.
