Healthy Families Waitākere, alongside a number of other Healthy Families sites, is working alongside the community to revive this traditional practice and bring in into everyday life.

Today, Maramataka is being weaved into people’s particular ways of living and work practice, where they’ve adapted this practice to align to the Gregorian calendar. Healthy Families Waitākere is pleased to share with you all a local west-coast Maramataka calendar, updated monthly and available for download below. This calendar highlights best days for planning, getting active, reflection, alongside many other activities.

This Maramataka calendar is aligned to the west coast, if you are on the east coast you’ll need to edit it so that Rakaunui falls on the day of the full moon.
