Ko te Ātea a Rangi i Te Matau a Māui he akoranga pukenga whakatere waka e āhei ai ngā tamariki kura te ako i ngā kōrero o Matariki, ngā aorangi me ngā nekenekehanga o Tama Nui te Rā

"I kī mai ōku kuia ko te wā o Matariki he wā ki te whakamahana tātou i a tātou anō kia rongo i ngā pūrakau me te hakari hoki," tā kaiwaiata a Pereri King.

e whai wahanga ai ngā tamariki ki te mātai ki a Ranginui i te pō ki te whai akonga mō Matariki.


"E mauria mai ngā tamariki i kōnei ki te ako i ngā mea e pā ana ki te taiao, e pā ana ki ngā whetū, kia Papatūānuku kia Ranginui me ētahu atu mea," tā Piripi Smith nō Ātea a Rangi Educational Trust.

He rima tekau mita te whānui o te Atea a Rangi nei, ina he whā tau rawa te roa e oti ai te mahi, he waahi hei ako i ngā purakau o te takanga o te rā i tēnei wahanga o te tau.


"I tēnei wā ka moe a Tamanui te Rā ki Hinetakurua i te ata nei ko tēnei te takanga o te rā ka hoki a Tamanui te Rā ki te moe ki a Hineraumati," tā Smith.


Ko te tino ia o te Atea a Rangi he ako pukenga whakatere waka kāore hoki he atea a rangi pēnei te nui i tēnei pito o te ao.
