Each year more people are utilizing the maramataka Māori as well as the world Gregorian calendar. Rueben Taipari gives us a kōrero about the maramataka Māori and the relevance it has to people living in Aotearoa. Rueben elaborates on the current month of January also know as Kohitātea in Māori of which the word kohi means to collect and gather. So Rueben says Kohitātea is a good month for gather food. Rueben also touches on the Waitangi Day commemorations and shares his thoughts on the importance of ensuring that we continue to maintain such kaupapa close to our Ngāpuhi people.
