WAKA HOURUA: Early Polynesian double-hulled canoes voyaged from Hawaiki to Aotearoa (New Zealand) about 1000 years ago. As well as carrying up to 60 people, these large canoes would carry such things as provisions, plants, seed tubers, pigs, dogs and fowl. A fireplace on a bed of sand was carried for cooking during the voyage. Some canoes were three-masted, with sails made of plaited pandanus mats
