Mānoa Campus,

Aloha kakou,

Please join us this Wednesday evening on on October 21, 2020 at 7 pm for our 19th Brandt Webinar focusing on AOTEROA: Matariki Rising: Ceremonies for the New Year by Professor Rangi Matamua, of Tuhoe, who is a senior academic at the University of Waikato NZ.

Professor Matamua holds extensive knowledge about our skies, star clusters, galaxies and planets. He is a fifth generation Maori astronomer on a mission to disseminate star lore left to him by his tipuna Te Kokau & Rawiri Te Kokau.

He is the author of the critically acclaimed book, Matariki, that was released in 2017 and represents an authentic Maori view and understanding of the star cluster.

Please share the attached flyers with all of your family, friends, and networks.

I hope you enjoyed our presentation last week on TAHITI STARS: Stars in Mind, Tahitian Temples as an Ancient GPS by Libor Prokop, a Tahitian Ethno-Astronomer who works with the Haururu Association of Papenoo, that is dedicated to preserving Tahitian Ancestral knowledge, especially about Tahitian temples and stars.
