Te mahi hoko mokamokai, i te tau 1770

Nō te tau 1770 tēnei pikitia, ā, e mau ana te tangata kei te taha mauī i te mokamokai. He mea tā tēnei pikitia e Sydney Parkinson; te tohungatā a Kāpene Kuki i tōna taenga tuatahi ki Aotearoa. I tērā tau, ka hokona e tōna mātanga pūtaiao e Joseph Banks te mokamokai mai i tētahi koroua ki Tōtaranui. Kīhai te koroua i pīrangi ki te hoko atu. Mai i te tekau tau 1820 ka kaha hokona ngā mokmokai e te Māori, ā, tērā pea ka tāia ngā mōkai kia pai ai te hoko i ngā ūpoko.
