A Maori cultural consultant is asking businesses to avoid disrespectful marketing ploys linked to the Matariki holiday.

Tātou’s chief executive, Skye Kimura, said that although there are no laws prohibiting Matariki advertising, companies should act responsibly.

“It’s a time when we have to remember, reflect, reset and think about last year, think about the new year, what it means to us. For too long people have pleaded for this time, that I absolutely do not want to see a Matariki Big Mac special at McDonalds this Friday,” she said.
