How to hāngī

Hāngī is a traditional Māori method of cooking where food is cooked in the ground. The origins of the hāngī can be found in the umu (earth ovens) of ancient Polynesia. Read our guide to this cooking technique created with support from Hone Hurihanganui, Director of Engaging Well.

Matariki kaleidoscope

Matariki is the Māori name for a cluster of stars, also known as the Pleiades. The Matariki star cluster rises in the midwinter night sky, marking the beginning of the Māori New Year. This is a time of reflection. Follow our guide for this kids' D.I.Y. project to help celebrate this meaningful time.
