Āhua o te takutai o Aotearoa

He maha ngā momo onepū ki Aotearoa, pēnei i tēnei ki Whenuahou (Codfish Island). E 6,000 tau ki mua, ka piki te papatairitenga moana (sea level) ki tōna taumata o ēnei rā; ka toremi ngā whāruarua, kia tū mai ko ngā wāhi pērā i ngā kokoru o Te Wairau (Marlborough Sounds). Nā te moana i ruke te rahi o te kirikiri, kia tū mai ngā onepū me ngā tāhuna.
