Nga Waka-a-Kupe, Marinborough, Wairarapa, by Michael Hall
1. Ngā Waka-a-Kupe (Kupe’s canoes), Martinborough, Wairarapa, photographer Michael Hall 

Stories of Kupe tell of his prowess as a builder of waka. At Cape Palliser, Kupe and his tohunga (ritual expert), Ngake, had a waka-building competition. Kupe was the winner, finishing his waka first, while Ngake failed to complete the task. The Aorangi Range symbolises the upturned hulls of the waka while the sheer cliffs overlooking the sea represent the sails.

The Frame Shop logoThis photograph is one of a series by Michael Hall that explores the sites and stories of Kupe, regarded by many iwi as the ancestor who discovered New Zealand. The series was commissioned by Te Papa and exhibited nationally.

With thanks to Michael Hall and to The Frame Shop, Taranaki St, Wellington.
