The Great Migration

Our school operetta was called Turangawaewae. It was all about the history of our place, and our item was about the great Migration of Maori to Aotearoa.
Here is our item:

The koruru was mounted on a bamboo pole so it could be put on top of the whare after it was built.
Rehearsal in the hall
The waka turns miraculously into a whare
We are Tainui and we claim this land!
The people look out to sea.
We arrive in our mighty sea-going waka from Hawaiiki

Here is our fire.

  1. Well done Rm 13 - your part of the Operetta was fantastic and you all did a great job!! I loved the way you made a marae out of the canoe - very creative.
