Waka Tapu by Jeff Evan

I listened and read this article.
In a nutshell I learnt...

  • in 2012 two Waka with people inside called Te Aurere and Ngahiraka Mai Tawhiti sailed to Rapanui. 
  • I also learnt that Gambier Islands is close to Rapanui.
  • when they were sailing It took ten months to go to Rapanui and go back.
  • During the journey the navigator yous his skills and knowledge to locate Rapanui Island.
  • The navigator used the sun and ocean swells and at night he used the stars to keep him on track.
  • The voyages was the dream of master Waka builder Hekenukumai.
