Whakataetae waka ama ki Tāmaki-makau-rau i te tau 2009

Ko te waka ama he waka nō ngā iwi o Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa. I ēnei rā hangaia ai ngā waka ama i ngā papanga o ēnei rā engari taketake mai i ngā tauira tawhito. He nui te whai o ngā whakataetae waka ama puta noa i te ao – i tīmata ake i ngā tau o 1980. Ko te rōpū waka ama o te kura tuarua o Papatoetoe tēnei kei te whakataetae o ngā kura tuarua o Tāmaki-makau-rau ka tū ki Ōrākei. Ahakoa nō ēnei rā ngā whakataetae waka ama, kia maumahara tātou he tikanga tūturu tēnei mai anō, puta noa i Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa.
