More Info →Hawaiki-nui, Pahiatua

I tikina ngā rakau totara ki Pahiatua mai i te ngahere o Whirinaki i te marama o Hakihea i te tau 1979. Ko te kaiwhakakairo i roto i te whakaahua ko Fred Clamp. Ko te kaiārahi ko Mātahi Avauli Whakataka-Brightwell. I neke atu te waka ki Porirua kia oti ai, ā, i te tau 1985 i haere atu te waka o Whakataka-Brightwell rāua ko te kaiwhakatere ko Francis Cowan nō Tahiti, mai i Tahiti, ki Rarotonga, ki Aotearoa e orite nei ki ngā haerenga o Ngātia Arawa me Tainui i ngā wā i mua. Nā ngā whetu i haere ai te waka. The two 20 metre totara logs were brought to Pahiatua from the Whirinaki Forest in December 1979. The carver in the photograph is Fred Clamp and the project was led by Mātahi Avauli Whakataka-Brightwell. The double-hulled waka was made to traditional standards and in 1985 sailed the traditional route of Te Arawa-Tainui from Tahiti to Rarotonga then south-west to Aotearoa.
