Maori ancestors were amazing voyagers. They travelled thousands of miles exploring the ocean and land. They were expert navigators who studies stars, winds, clouds, ocean currents to travel thousands of kilometres in the massive ocean. They were very skilful builders as well. They build various types of waka using natural elements such as wooden planks, fibre ropes, sails woven with Pandan Leaves. Waka Hourua is also known as Double Hull canoe is a big waka built for long voyages.
Waka Hourua is a fun educational board game for children to learn about the concepts of early Polynesian Migration and to play as a team to navigate the ocean.
This is also a great tool for teachers to facilitate the concepts of New Zealand history to students in an engaging and fun way.
