A whakapapa quilt tells a story, heals and gives you a really good moe. Matariki is a time for old wisdom, reflection and kotahitanga. A quilt symbolizes safety, warmth and comfort.
I am but a servant of the great Hine te Iwaiwa, I serve in her house, Te Whare Pora. I give thanks for being able to share this Matariki kaupapa, it's buzzy.
Come, be a part of the vibe. I'm going to be doing some special Matariki story telling with puppets and quilts on Queens Birthday, Monday at 1.30pm.
