Description

Find out all about how New Zealand was made in this traditional Mauri creation story. As the heroic Kupe and mythical octopus, Te Wheke, battle it out on the open seas, it’s impossible to tell who’ll be victorious. As the drama builds in this legend of good over evil, a new land is created, and the fascinating ancient Mauri culture is explored.
