Story: Te iwi Māori

Whale rider (Te Kaieke Tohorā)

I ahu mai a Whale rider (2002) i tētahi kōrero pūrākau nā Witi Ihimaera. Ko Niki Caro te kaitohutohu o te kiriata. He pūrākau mō Paikea, te tipuna i tau ki Aotearoa mā runga tohorā. He kiriata taiea a Whale rider, i manakotia e ngā iwi ki tāwāhi. Whāia, ka puta te rongo mō Keisha Castle-Hughes te kōtiro nāna te tūranga o Paikea i kawe. Kei tēnei whakaaturanga kitea ai te wairua hātakēhi o te Māori, i ngā whiti kōrero kei waenganui i a Paikea, tōna kuia a Flowers (Vicky Haughton) rātou ko ōna hoa a Maka (Mabel Wharekawa-Burt) rāua ko Miro (Rāwinia Clarke).
