Maramataka means 'the moon turning,' and is the Māori lunar calendar. Time was marked by Maramataka and was consulted for almost any activity taking place in the community. Some days or nights of the Maramataka were better to do certain activities than other days. For example, fishing or convening important hui or conducting rituals, such as baptisms.
