To celebrate Matariki we made a korowai. All of our toddlers made a collage feather and the teachers made one too,  then we put them all together to make our cloak. This korowai is representative of all the children in our room. It was the central part of our wall display on Matariki this year.

Papatuanuku, mother earth. In Māori tradition, Papatūānuku is the land. She is a mother earth figure who gives birth to all things, including people. Trees, birds and people are born from the land, which then nourishes them. Some traditions say that the land first emerged from under water.  In the Māori creation story, Papatūānuku had many children with Ranginui, the sky father. Their children pushed them apart to let in the light.
