Vaka Voyagers


video
Maori myths and legends tell us stories of how the first Polynseians 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 th ejourney. 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.
Check ou tsome of my other work on my own blog.

Such detai1! I look forward to seeing your animation in HyperStudio with the buttons connecting to information pages.
I notice your written post here talks about the Polynesian voyages, your movie and how amazing these mariners were. All these sentences are together in one paragraph. Do you think you could rework this so it is clearer for your audience?

Hi Toreka

I like your movie it was very detailed.You spoke clearly that I could understand what you were talking about. Isn't it cool that you can get the fibre from the coconuts to make the ropes strong.
Keep up te god work
