Understanding the Lunar Phases

From Te Ahi Kaa, 6:06 pm on 4 August 2019

In part two of this series, Rereata Makiha explains the different lunar phases of the maramataka used as a guide for the best times to plant, fish and collect kaimoana. In recent years Makiha says more people are becoming interested in how the Maramataka works – a trend he says, is about keeping this knowledge alive. Te Ahi Kaa features highlights of a recent presentation hosted by Rotorua Library.
