Kōrero: Te whakatere waka

Ngā heke i Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Ngā heke i Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Nō waenganui i te 4000 BC me te 2000 BC ka puea mai tētahi hangarau hōu ki tētahi moutere i te tonga mā rāwhiti o Āhia – ko te waka ama. Heke iho i ngā mano tau, nā ngā tūmomo waka whanake o tēnei auahatanga tūturu i kawe i te tangata ki Te Moananui-a-Kiwa puta noa. I te nuinga o te wā, i whakatere ngā tīpuna o ngā iwi o Te Moananui-a-Kiwa, arā, ngā Lapita i ō rātou waka ki roto i ngā “hau whakaterāwhiti” e pupuhi ana ki te tonga mā rāwhiti.
