Hoe nō Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Hoe nō Te Moananui-a-Kiwa

Ko te hoe te kaiwhakatere i te nui rawa atu o ngā waka ririki kei Te Moananui-a-Kiwa. Ko ngā waka nunui ake ka puta ki te moana nui, i taea ēnei te hoe, te neke rānei mā te hau. I whakamahia anōtia ngā hoe hei urungi i te waka. Kei ngā waka ama iti, mā te tangata kei muri rawa e tohu i te waka me tana hoe. I ngā waka nui ake, ka whakamahia he hoe rahi hei urungi i te waka.
