Matariki Macarena

As part of our learning about different cultures, we read the story about Matariki, the Maori new year. Matariki is the eldest of the seven sisters and they are the seven stars that appear in early winter.
The sighting of this cluster of stars marks the beginning of the new year. This song tells us the names of the seven sisters.
