Here is a video. Kite’s have a special meaning in the Maori culture. They are a way of thinking about our ancestors. they have been used to celebrate matariki for years. This is The legend of matariki I’m not very good at explaining so I got a video to explain. . lots of different countries call matariki different names: seven sisters, subaru and Messier 45 (Subaru is actually 6 stars but it still means matariki).
