Professor Rangi Mātāmua holding back tears just now… ‘feeling emotional… pretty overwhelmed,’ he says. Think many of us are feeling that. So proud to be Māori, so proud to see Aotearoa celebrating Matariki ✨

Today is the first time we celebrate Matariki as a nation. It’s a time to remember those we have lost, celebrate and give thanks for what we have, and to look forward to the promise of the new year. Today’s @NZStuff @DomPost #cartoon #Aotearoa #Matariki https://t.co/1qGEjcbUwW

the gall of National - to oppose everything and anything to do with Māori recognition and rights, to vote against the Matariki Holiday, to mock using the Māori name for the constellation - and then put up a video celebrating the holiday.

A reminder that Matariki, the most special, most authentic & uncorrupted of our holidays, would've never been officially celebrated if the Nats & Act had their way & even when they couldn't stop it, they wanted to remove any reference to Maori in the name #NationalNotFitToGovern

Confession: At first, I thought the idea of a Matariki Day was kinda lame, given all the other priorities. But I have to say today has been so uplifting, reaffirming & joyful. It ended with an amazing kai at Prego - te reo music playing. Reflecting, celebrating, re-setting.

Matariki has made me proud to be Māori and proud to be a NZer, and those things don’t always happen at the same time. Embracing my māoritanga has often been about deciding to join the fight. But matariki isn’t about the fight, and that’s more powerful than I realised it would be.

Hard to put into words what the first Matariki public holiday means, or to express strongly enough acknowledgements for those who have learned and taught and struggled and strategized behind the scenes for how many years + lifetimes

The bald faced hypocrisy. The Nats voted against Matariki becoming an official holiday & even wanted to change the name to Pleiades. Now they're making out they're huge supporters & even want to educate us on Matariki. It's like fascists pretending they embrace Hanukkah. https://t.co/sgsxEAOHCq

If my Twitter feed is anything to go by, the inaugural Matariki public holiday has been a rip-roaring success, right across the motu! Mānawatia a Matariki! ✨✨✨

People are so enjoying Matariki, our first public holiday in sync with nature and the seasons. I’m very grateful to tangata whenua for their work to put Matariki at the heart of public life. I hope people’s shared enjoyment of it will advance the wider cause of Indigenous rights.

Pleiades is way harder to remember and spell than Matariki, you racist arseholes make no sense!

Watching the @TVNZ stream from this morning's Matariki ceremonies! How can you not be filled with joy to see tikanga Māori being returned to its rightful place as a pillar of life in Aotearoa?

There are many people who did the mahi to give us this wonderful gift of Matariki being officially recognised & celebrated. Kia Ora to you all & #ChurArdern #KeepMovingForwardTogether

Our whānau had to cancel plans due to the plague, so I made tuna pasta bake in order to share with the one family member I am allowed to be in the same room with. She was VERY happy with my cooking (i.e. draining the water from the can into a bowl). Happy Matariki kai time! 🥰 https://t.co/KHdPP84XXs

I wonder if David Seymour went to work today? I wonder if David Seymour gave his days wages to someone else? David Seymour doesn’t believe in #Matariki holiday.

A few uptight Maori warned about not commercialising Matariki so all the stores are running “long weekend sales” lol

@NewshubNZ It'll take more than Matariki to fix the problem you made Ardern. Polarised people by race and vax status. Disgusting. https://t.co/tsxFKOwF1X
