Three interesting facts

  • The Maori had sailed the seas, from Hawaiki searching for new land,soon  finding New Zealand. Maori are very similar to other polynesian cultures like Tahiti and the Cook Islands.

  • One New Zealand Demigod, is Maui. Maui the Demigod is famous for many things. He had taught humans the useful arts and had pulled the sun in making the days longer, but he is mostly famous for fishing up the North Island.

  • To catch the Huge Fish, now known as the North Island, he had used a hook the he had made secretly using a magical ancestral jawbone, pulling the fish up with help from his brothers.

I didn’t know that Maori were origonaly from Hawaiki so it was good to learn. Another thing That I liked was that you included your learning intention.
