Kaikōura District is marking Matariki with a free community ball that will celebrate the strength and selflessness of its community through dark times and also the bright times to look forward to. This is the time of year when the whānau star cluster of Matariki come together. Their arrival marks the occurrence of the Māori New Year, a time of reflection, celebration, togetherness and of new beginnings. Everyone in our community is a star. Thanks to the generosity of Te Rununga o Mataawaka o Otautahi, we have seven awards that will be given out for each of Matariki’s stars. These awards represent some special things that people have done within our community.
