Maori Polynesian Settlers!

Approximately 1000 years ago, Polynesians were the very first settlers, to settle on Aotearoa, New Zealand. But did you know, once they had settled in New Zealand they were know as Maoris. These early settlers came from East of Polynesia! Travelling by canoes.

Trained navigators used stars by night, birds and sea swells by day. With a gust of wind, a turbulent storm had came by. Killing most Polynesians on their journey to New Zealand!
