He mahere o ngā heke i Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Nō Poronihia ngā tāngata tuatahi ka tae ki Aotearoa. I wehe mai rātou i te pokapū o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa mā runga waka i waenganui i ngā tau 1200 me 1300 AD. E 2000 tau, 3000 tau rānei i mua i tēnei, kua oti kē e ngā tīpuna o te Māori, arā, te iwi Lapita te noho ki ngā moutere pāmamao o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa mai i tō rātou kāinga tūturu i te tonga mā-rāwhiti o Āhia. E tohua ana te roanga atu o tā rātou heke ki te mahere nei. 1450
