Te Papa Matariki resources
We created this video to show one of the Matariki (Maori New Year) stories for our Matariki celebration at school.
Maori masks depicting Maori gods. The symmetrical motifs in the background were part of a mathematics lesson.
Maui's jealous brothers don't want him to come fishing with them. But clever Maui catches the best fish of all.

How Maui Slowed the Sun...I wanted to use this when we did porquoi tales, if YouTube wasn't blocked!
