Cultural elements

Astronism in New Zealand refers to the presence of the Astronist philosophy and religion in the Oceanian country of New Zealand. The operations of the Astronist Institution in this country are under jurisdiction of the Astronist Superiate of New Zealand, a national subsidiary of the worldwide Astronist Institution.

The Astronist Superiate of New Zealand oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. New Zealand is split into sixteen regions and is set to hold two Grand Observatories in the capital city of Wellington, as well as in the city of Auckland.

This national branch of the Astronist Institution manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.

It is the Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.

History of Astronism in New Zealand

As of December 2020, Astronism is not recognised as a valid religion or religious group in the country of New Zealand. According to the Astronist Institution's late 2020 report called the Demographics of Astronism, New Zealand had a population of 51,870 Astronists, up from 49,000 Astronists in 2019. 

Despite their unrecognised status, Astronists enjoy relative religious liberties in the country and can practice and profess their faith openly and publicly without fear of repression or incident. Therefore, the Astronist Institution has not expressed concerns regarding the religious freedoms for Astronists in this country.
