Episode 422: Horeta and The Waka

Wyatt and Jacob are both year 6 in room 17 review a beautiful story "Horeta and The Waka" By Gordon Campbell, illustrated by Zak Waipara.

"Based on the true story of a Maori tribe's first meeting with Captain James Cook and his crew, as seen through the eyes of the boy Te Horeta."

Horeta is the first to see a very large waka (sailing ship) heading for their land. The 'Strange men' bring many new  pieces of equipment and a completely different variety of food, such as rifles,nails and beef jerky!

Check out this awesome podcast by Wyatt and Jacob, as they talk about this great book!
