Vaka Voyagers

Maori myths and legends tell us stories of how the first Polynesians got to Aotearoa New Zealand. Yet, no one knows where they came from. Most think from the island of Hawaiiki, which is around all the other Pacific Islands. The movie above explains what they would've taken along for the journey. Imagine trying to pack food for 50 people, for 3 months!!! These polynesians sure are Mighty Mariners. 
 Too bad no one else can do the same as these brave warriors.


  1. Cool Toreka,I loved your little clip of how the first settelers came to
    NZ. When I am a year six I hope My graphics and voiceover is as good as yours. Keep up the great work.


  2. Nice work Toreka, you certainly managed to fit a lot of information in to your animation. Why do you think they left their home to undertake such a difficult journey?
    They sure were Mighty Mariners!
    Keep up the great work.

  3. Malo Toreka! I enjoyed watching your animation, it was informative. How about fixing this - I'm sure you'll notice your timing is not quite right. Just thought to mention it so that the rest of your audience will have a smooth viewing of another neat animation. love mum
