Hawaikinui, tau 1985

Ko Matahi Brightwell rāua ko Francis Cowan ēnei me ētahi atu kaihoe o te waka o Hawaikinui i tōna whakapaenga i Ōkahu, ki Tāmaki-makaurau. I hahaua mai te waka i ngā tōtara e rua mai i te ngahere o Whirinaki. He mea hākaro te waka ki Porirua me Pahīatua i mua i tōna kawenga ki Tahiti kia whakaotiotihia. I te tau 1985 ka mahuta a Hawaikinui mai i Tahiti; ka ū ki Rarotonga, tau rawa mai ki Aotearoa. Nā ngā Kuki Airani, ngā iwi o Tahiti me ngā Māori rātou i pōwhiri mai ki Aotearoa.
