Kupe: Voyaging by the Stars
Philip Carter Family Auditorium
According to Māori legend, Aotearoa was found by the explorer Kupe, chasing an octopus from Ra’iatea,Tahiti. This documentary follows the late Hekenukumai 'Hector' Busby, as he leads the construction of a waka hourua (double-hulled canoe), then retraces Kupe’s course across the Pacific back to Rarotonga.
