So Team tui did a poem about Matariki and we had to do 4 senses and 4 Of Matarikis sisters If you cant really see it I put the poems here
Have you ever felt Matariki? Of Course you have!
Have you ever felt the gentle breeze outside while looking at the stars breathing then rolling down the grass while gasping for air and your brother was laughing at you because you couldn’t stop rolling for 10 seconds because the wind kept pushing you while there was grass in your mouth? Then your grandma is calling dinners ready!
that was Ururangi
Have you ever Smelt Matariki?
Sure you have!
Remember while going inside you smell that yummy homemade family tradition. We added fried chicken, potatoes, cassava and kina and everyone played some board games before dinner. My favorite was monopoly because my family is very competitive. My brother said he will go to the “toilet” but he was actually eating on the kina. I knew he was because I smelt the yummy salty kina right away.
That was Waita
Have you ever tasted matariki? Sure you have!
Have you ever eaten your grandma’s cooking, savoring the chicken with the crisp on the outside, with a flavorful crust and potatoes making you want to eat yourself to sleep? And you wake up while everyone is watching an action movie. Your still getting up from the couch to the kitchen because you slept before you can eat your second chicken and potato combo
That was Tupu a Nuku
Have you ever seen Matariki? Certainly!
Do you ever just go back outside and lay down on the grass and look at the tree after having a good feed staring at the stars for a good minute or two? Trying to see your future as an NBA star coming back to New Zealand for Matariki the Maori new year doing the same thing over and over again. Seeing the same bright and glowing stars
