Did you know the Maori New Year known as Matariki, is in fact celebrated in the middle of year, usually in June. The exact timings vary each year as it aligns with the reappearance of the Matariki star cluster, which also signals the best time of year to plant the new season Kumara crops (sweet potato). This year Matariki will begin on the 15th June, so we’ve dedicated this months Stray New Zealand promotion to the celebrations.
