Ngā moutere hūpeke

Ngā moutere hūpeke

He pai ngā moutere o Kermadec hei wāhi peka i te hekenga ki Aotearoa mai i Poronihia ki te rāwhiti. Ki te hoe he waka mā te tonga mā uru, kāore e kore ka tūtaki rātou ki ngā Kermadec. Kua kitea te tūhua (obsidian) mai i Aotearoa ki Raoul, te moutere whakateraki rawa o ngā Kermadec. I tua atu, kei reira anō ngā taunakitanga DNA o ngā kiore nō Kermadec me te moutere o Norfolk e tohu ana ki te rerekē o ngā momo kiore. He tohu tēnei ki te mea he wāhi peka ēnei moutere mō ngā waka e haere ana i waenganui i a Poronihia ki te rāwhiti me Aotearoa.
