Event description

Description

An account of Māori maritime history. The adventures of Te Rangatira and Ida. A love story of the Hauraki Gulf and its’ islands. The scow Ida, and the cutter Te Rangatira, were owned by Tenetahi Pohuehue and Rahui Te Kiri of Pakiri (Ngāti Manuhiri and Ngātiwai). Sailed by their children the two boats supplied the rapidly growing city of Auckland with Kauri timber from Hauturu (Little Barrier Island) and fresh produce from the outer Hauraki Gulf islands. These highly skilled sailors were often competitive and victorious in the Auckland Regatta. The boats were commissioned by Tenetahi and were built by the Mieklejohn family at Omaha Bay. Join us for an interactive multi-discipline exhibition and an oratory from renowned Mana Whenua writer Paula Morris, a Māori dance workshop and performance and traditional navigation and rope making workshops.
