The Maramataka with Rereata Makiha

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:04 pm on 28 July 2019

The Māori Lunar Calendar or the Maramataka outlines the different phases of the moon and is a guide to the optimal days for fishing, planting or harvesting food. Maramataka exponent Rereata Makiha discusses the different names of the moon phases and how these also relate to human behaviours. Te Ahi Kaa presents highlights of a recent presentation at Rotorua Library.
