Ngā kekeno o Kaikōura

Ngā kekeno o Kaikōura

Kitea ai te kekeno ki ngā takutai o Aotearoa me ngā moutere ririki e tata ana. He tino kai te kekeno ki ngā iwi o Ngāi Tahu e noho ana ki Kaikōura. I ngā tau tōmua o 1800 ka tata ngaro ngā kekeno i te mahi a ngā kaipatu kekeno. Ka hokona ngā huruhuru hei papanga kākahu, pōtae hoki. Atu i te pokapū o te tekau tau o 1980 ka tipu anō te kekeno ki Kaikōura. Kua rāhuitia te kekeno i ēnei rā.
