The work was prepared for print and collated for interactive workshops with tamariki (children) held in Auckland, Waitakere, Hamilton, Taupo and Wellington in Aotearoa New Zealand from Pipiri (May/June) 2005 in celebration of Te Hou Māori Matariki, the Aotearoa-Pacific New Year and the 4th edition of Matariki He Maramataka Māori
