Dr Rangi Matamua on Paakiwaha

An expert Maori astronomer is being rushed off his feet delivering public lectures on Matariki, the Maori new year, and wants the celebration to become a public holiday.

Over June and July, Dr Rangi Matamua will travel to centres across New Zealand to present more than 30 lectures on the constellation - also known as Pleiades - its significance to Maori, and where to find it in the night sky. It should be visible from June 15.
