The Matariki Collection
This will be a stroll down memory lane for many WIFT members!

Matariki is a cluster of stars which hold special significance in M?ori culture, and their rising in early June marks new beginnings and the M?ori New Year. To celebrate, here is our collection filled with iconic M?ori TV, film and music - from Boy, Billy T, and Poi-E, to documentaries on The M?ori Land March and Dame Whina Cooper. Also in the collection are two background pieces written by the late Whai Ngata, the former TVNZ Head of M?ori Programming.
