Te mahere whenua a Kuki mō Aotearoa, 1773

I mahere noa iho a Abel Tasman i te tai hauāuru o Aotearoa, mai i Punakāiki, ki Te Rēinga. Nā runga i tēnei, ka noho tonu te ariā i te Pākehā, tērā pea he whenua rahi kei te tonga e takoto ana. Nā te kaitoro Ingarihi nā Hēmi Kuki i kite, ko te whenua i tūhuratia e Tasman, he moutere kē. Me mīharo mō te tohungatanga tā mahere a Kuki i a ia ka huri taiāwhio i ngā motu o Aotearoa i ngā tau 1769–70.
