He kōrero whetū – let’s talk stars

Join us for public talk about Matariki, maramataka and tātai aroraki (Māori Astronomy) by Kāi Tahu astronomer Victoria Campbell. The talk will explore knowledge of our southern tātai arorangi, its importance and relevance.

A light afternoon tea will be provided after the talk to encourage the conversation to continue.
