Polynesians come to New Zealand
Polynesians travelled by canoe, thousands of years ago to a land called New Zealand. They say that the canoes were 15 to 25 meters long. The canoe is made out of planks and a woven sail to guide people to land.
Experienced trained navigators were directed from the sea swell. They were searching for sighs to get to there new land. Unfortunately only a few manged to get across the stormy sea to Aotearoa.
