Talofa lava & Greetings,
Today I wanted to share a late blog post as a explanation of my sisters writing! Kolotita, remember to take a look on my sisters blog. I am very proud of my sister and her education of writing!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED TAKE A LOOK BELOW FOR THE WRITING!

The parents of matariki are Wainui, the mother, and Tangotango the father. Matariki is a cluster of 7 stars, representing the seven sisters. Their names are Tupu-a-nuku, Tupu-a-rangi, Waiti, Waita, Waipuna-a-rangi, Ururangi and Matariki. They are very energetic and they would always whizz about. They would zig zag all around the other stars. It would make Puanga, the red star, and Takurua, the blue star, very annoyed. They would complain about how the 7 sisters are moving around too much. Wainui and Tangotango overheard the complaints of the other stars and called their daughters. Wainui and Tangotango gave the 7 sisters a task to do. It was to be the sign for a new year. Now Matariki signifies the beginning of a Māori New Year, remembering our past loved ones, and celebrating our lives to come.
