Matariki is the Māori name for the cluster of stars also known as the Pleiades. It rises in mid-winter and for many Māori, it heralds the start of a new year.
The kōrero behind the patterns used within this collection is strongly based around the tukutuku pattern, Purapura whetū (star seeds, or sometimes stardust). This formation of the cross-stitch has been used to represent either Hiwa-i-te-rangi on her own or as the entire matariki constellation and its nine stars.
