"Feed the stars, fill your cup." 

Hautapu is a traditional ceremony about making an offering to the Matariki star cluster. 

Two Waikato rangatahi, Hana-Rawhiti Maipi-Clarke and Hawaikii Maipi Ahu, help lead the first contemporary hautapu ceremony in their whānau. 

Hana and Hawaikii hope to see the revitalisation of Matariki celebrations like this across Aotearoa.

This is part of our reo Māori series, Ohinga, created by Mahi Tahi Media, with funding from Te Māngai Pāho.
