Journeys of Manu - Maramataka
Journeys of Manu_App cover.jpg

Join Manu on his quest to learn about the Maramataka (Maori Lunar Calendar). Explore the different areas of Aotearoa learning about how the stars and moon cycle were used to determine the ideal days for planting, fishing, giving-back and staying in-doors.

This app is GPS enabled so you can only activate Manu at the locations identified below. We change the locations periodically, so he can share his knowledge with many.
