Canoeing via a Maori Waka (Traditional war canoe), New Zealand

Waka brought divine gifts to the Maori First Nation. For this reason the waka inspire kotahitanga (unity) even today. My mind wonders that if Hawaii, Rapanui and Aotearoa were all reached by Waka what would have prevented them from reaching the Americas?

Hongi is a traditional Maori greeting, which literally means “to share breath”. Hongi is done by pressing one’s nose to the other person when they meet each other. It is believed that when the two noses meet, people exchange their breath and the visitor becomes one of the local people (tangata whenua).

The Taiaha (pronounced Tie-uh-ha). is a close quarters combat weapon. This traditional hardwood fighting staff looks like a spear but in fact is not. It was handled with two hands in roughly the same fashion as some weapons used in martial arts.   A typical taiaha has a pointed blade at one end a flattened edge at the other.The pointed end commonly is adorned with wood carving. In many cases a carved head, with paua shell eyes and an extended, defiant tongue made of greenstone jade.
