Kōrero: Te whakatere waka

Carving the Hawaiki-nui

Te auaha i a Hawaiki-nui

Ko Mātahi Avauli Whakataka-Brightwell rātou ko ana teina, tuākana, me ētahi o ngā kaiwhakairo o Hawaiki-nui kei Porirua i te tau 1981. I tāraia ngā takere e rua o te waka i ētahi tōtara nō te ngahere o Whirinaki. Ka whakaawaawatia ngā rākau ki Porirua me Pāhiatua i mua i te mauranga ki Tahiti, ki reira tāraia ai. I haere te waka atu i Tahiti ki Rarotonga, tatū rawa ki Aotearoa i te tau 1985.
