WEDNESDAY | KUPU O TE WIKI | WORD OF THE WEEK
As we say goodbye to September, we celebrate the word that refers to this month: MAHURU, the star celebrating the 4th lunar stella month since Matariki. Mahuru marked the return of the Pipiwharauroa and the Koekoeā from warmer parts of the Pacific to Aotearoa. The cry of the pipiwharauroa and Koekoeā is also said to be a call to the people to tend to the gardens in preparation for planting. A number of plants bloom during Mahuru including the pere, the pīnaki, the namunamu and the Kānuka.
