For Māori, the best times for the cultivation and harvesting of food were marked by bodies visible in the night sky. The passing of years, seasons and months were signalled by prominent stars and the phases of the moon.

Join a Museum Guide and take a closer look at how traditional food and natural resources were managed in Te Waipounamu through our displays and Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu’s Mahinga Kai films, now showing in our Southern Land, Southern People gallery.

2pm weekends, 29 June to 21 July
