The story Matariki
In a beautiful valley where trees grew tall there lived the seven sisters who made wonderful kites for harvest. The first sister made a native green kite out of harakeke bush. The second sister made a wonderful orange kite out of raupo bush. The third sister made a pretty ping kite out of manuka bush. The fourth sister made a lovely red kite out of puriri tree. The fifth sister made a sparkling blue kite the colour of the river. The sixth sister made a plane white kite out of toetoe bush. The seventh sister, most smartest sister made a rainbow kite it was fantastic and her name was Matariki. After all their hard work making their amazing kites they took their kites up to the hill to fly them, but sadly there was no wind so the tied their kites to the puriri tree and took a nap. During that night the wind blew all the kites right off the tree. Later that night Matariki woke up and found out that all of the kites are gone then she started crying, all that crying made her other sisters wake up and they also found out that all the kites were gone. So all the sisters started looking for their kites but Matariki looked up in the night sky and saw all their kites it was like their were dancing in the sky. So each morning Matariki rose in the morning sky, signalling the start of new year the end.
