Matariki stars

Matariki stars rise during the cold winters, usually between May and the beginning of June. Did you know about 500 stars rise up at dawn? but you can only see the seven stars clearly in the sky. Then it disappears for 2 months and comes back in July.

What does the matariki mean to the maori I think it is a happy new year for them because the matariki helped the first maori people to come to aotearoa.

 The matariki helps the crops to grow because if the matariki stars are seen clearly crops will grow and it will be are warm summer if it is not seen clearly then the crops wouldn’t because it will be a very cold.
