Matariki ki Onehunga – Origins of Fire

Join us as we celebrate the Aotearoa’s newest public holiday in Onehunga with a two-day festival that is centred around storytelling, kai and whānau.

The showpiece of the festival will be a live projection each evening retelling the story of The Origin of Fire from a Māori perspective.

Rediscover the importance of Māui and Mahuika and the creation of fire.

There will be food trucks, workshops and storytelling throughout the day, honouring the tradition where people gather to share kai and kōrero during this period.
