Kōrero: Te reo Māori

Ko Tupaia rāua ko Kuki

Ko Tupaia rāua ko Kuki

E whakaatu ana tēnei tānga o Michel Tuffery, ara a 'Tupaia's chart Cook and Banks/Tupaia's and Parkinson's paintbox', i ngā pūkenga maha o te rangatira (arioi) Māori o Tahiti (Maohi) a Tupaia. I haere mai a Tupaia ki Aotearoa i te taha o Kāpene Kuki i te tau 1769. Neke atu i te 100 ngā moutere o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa i haerea, nā Tupaia i kawe. He mea tauira te whakaahua o te Māori me te Pākehā e hoko koura ana i tētahi o ngā whakaahua a Tupaia. Nā te ōrite o te reo Māori me te reo o Tahiti, ka noho ko Tupaia hei kaiwhakamārama reo mā Kuki i tōna ūnga ki Ōpoutama (ko Cooks Cove) i Ūawa.
