Planet Earth and Beyond - Zodiac Constellations

We have been learning about the Matariki Stars, also known as Pleiades and their importance to Maori. Matariki rises in the Eastern Sky on the 25th Pipiri 2017 - which is when Aotearoa Maori will celebrate "The Maori New Year". 
Look closely there may be a tira whetu  (star constellation) in the lower purapura whetu (star cluster).
Can you find one?
