Ngā Tohunga Whakatere: The Navigators

Dame Cindy and Dr Davies visited Space Place at Carter Observatory to see Ngā Tohunga Whakatere: The Navigators. The 3D film tells the story of how Māori, Pasifika and Europeans sailed to Aotearoa by relying on the skies as their guide. It tells this story through the eyes of Moko, a young girl learning how to navigate using the stars, as her tūpuna once did. Moko is played by young Wellington actress Reina Stephens, who co-stars with Lawrence Wharerau from Experience Wellington and our own Kaumātua, Joe Harawira.
