Te Tau Toru Nui o Matariki | Matariki Calendar

 This is the Māori version of Te Tau Toru Nui o Matariki, a three-year calendar system with Matariki at its heart.This Māori time-keeping method is based on the position of the sun, which marks the season, the predawn rising of certain stars that mark the month and the changing lunar phases that mark the day. The triangulation of sun, stars and moon along with other ecological and seasonal factors all feed into this unique calendar system. It follows a three-year cycle, where an additional month is added into the calendar every three years based on the sighting of Matariki.
