More research on Maori astronomy

From Afternoons, 1:35 pm on 11 June 2024

With the renewed prominence of Matariki in our lives and associated research of Māori Astronomy there's a constant flow of new information to share on how to appropriately mark the annual event.

Victoria Campbell is an advocate for Māori astronomy and the natural world, she's also spearheading research into South Island Māori astronomy through her work with Tūhura Otago Museum.

She's talks to Jesse about what she's uncovered and how it can help shape Matariki events.
