Ngā Tohunga Whakatere: The Navigators
Traverse the largest ocean on Earth with Moko, an intrepid teenager who follows the star paths of her ancestors as they sail across the Pacific towards her homeland, Aotearoa New Zealand. She time travels between centuries and cultures to witness life onboard the waka hourua (sailing canoes) of her Māori forefathers, and the ships of English captain Lt. James Cook and Dutch explorer, Abel Tasman. She takes in the view of Earth from space, stands alongside the navigators, experiences their traditions, uncovers their science, and wraps it all up in the space knowledge we have today. Co-producers Experience Wellington and Island Productions Aotearoa.
