In traditional Māori society, day-to-day activities were guided by the Maramataka lunar phases and the environment, indicating the best time for planting, fishing and harvesting. Phases of the moon expressed in the Maramataka still influence how we connect with the environment and ourselves today. Over a 30-day period there are low, medium and high energy days. In the lead up to Matariki, a series of graphic communications were produced to bring focus to these aspects of the Maramataka.
