Kōrero: Te whakatere waka

Waka ama o Nūkini

Waka ama o Nūkini

I tauirahia ngā whakaahua nei i ngā tānga huahua a te tohungatā o runga i te kaipuke Wīwī, a Astrolabe, i hōpara i te raki o Nūkini i te tau 1827. Nō te tāpiritanga atu o te ama (he pērā i te takere, engari he paku ake) ki te waka, kua tau te haere o te waka. He mea here ngā rauawa hei hono i te ama ki te takere. Nā te pīngore o ngā rākau me ngā kaha i ekengia ai e te waka ngā ngaru whakapuke.
