The Matariki star cluster holds great importance for Maori and the people of Aotearoa New Zealand, but it is seen and celebrated across the world. The Matariki constellation is known by many different names (including Pleiades); from times of old, it has been used to guide people from many different lands.
This book has been beautifully illustrated by Isobel Joy Te Aho-White. Nine separate stories explore the Maori Matariki stars, and twelve more from different cultures around the globe reference the same constellation.
