Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1907. Not illustrated. Excerpt: ... 10. Te-tangihanga-a-Kupe (Kupe's lamenting) Barrett's reef above --so called because Kupe here bewailed his daughters or nieces, when leaving them (see below). 11. Matiu (Soames Island) and Makaro (Ward's Island, south of the former) islands in Wellington Harbour called after two nieces of Kupe. 12. Te-ra-o-Mata-hourua (the sail of Mata-hourua) name of a place near Ohariu, on Cook Straits, west of Wellington; another story says the sail is at Hataitai, Lyell's Bay, Wellington, but on the sea-coast. 13. Te-punga-o-Mata-hourua (the anchor of Mata-hourua) a stone with a hole for the cable, lying on the sandy flat north-east aide of the railway bridge, Porirua. 14. Mata-hourua canoe is said to have landed at Wai-tawa, just inside Porirua heads, south side. 15. Wairaka, a rock on the coast near Pae-kakariki, said to repre sent one of Kupe's daughters. 16. Orongo-mai-ta-kupe, a place near Cape Egmont, but whether it has anything to do with Kupe is uncertain. Fanciful as the above names are, they seem to show a connection with the celebrated navigator. All these places are on the shores of Cook Straits, excepting Numbers 3 and 16, and there are also two rocks on the coast near Rimu-rapa, Sinclair's Head, near Wellington, named Toka-haere and Mo-huia, which represent Kupe's daughters mourning for him, when he crossed the Straits to prosecute his discoveries in the Middle Island. Passing over for the present Kupe's connection with the Patea river, Cook Straits, we now come to the places connected with his name in the north, the information having been gathered by Mr. John White some fifty or sixty years ago. 17. Te-au-kanapanapa (the flashing current) a projecting point to the east of Whangaroa harbour, East Coast, where the water is clear and sparkling, and here traditi...

Voyage Of Rediscovery from the Author: Ben Finney. In the summer of 1985, a mostly Hawaiian crew set out aboard Hokule'a, a reconstructed ancient double canoe, to demonstrate what skeptics had steadfastly denied: that their ancestors, sailing in such canoes and navigating solely by reading stars, ocean swells, and other natural signs, could intentionally have sailed across the Pacific, exploring the vast oceanic realm of Polynesia and discovering and settling all its inhabitable islands. Their round-trip odyssey from Hawai'i to Aotearoa (New Zealand), across 12,000 nautical miles, dramatically refuted all theories declaring that—because of their unseaworthy canoes and inaccurate navigational methods—the ancient Polynesians could only have been pushed accidentally to their islands by the vagaries of wind and current. Voyage of Rediscovery is a vivid, immensely readable account of this remarkable journey through the Pacific, including tales of a curiosity attack by sperm whales and the crew's welcome to Aotearoa by Maori tribesmen, who dubbed them their sixth tribe. It describes how Hawaiian navigator Nainoa Thompson guided the canoe over thousands of miles of open ocean without compass, sextant, charts, or any other navigational aids. In so doing, it documents the experimental voyaging approach, developed by Ben Finney, which has both transformed our ideas about Polynesian migration and voyaging and been embraced by present-day Polynesians as a way to experience and celebrate their rich ancestral heritage as premier seafarers. By sailing in the wake of their ancestors, the Hawaiians and other Polynesians who captained, navigated, and crewed Hokule'a made the journey described here a cultural as well as a scientific odyssey of exploration.

The Great Canoes In The Sky from the Author: Stephen Robert Chadwick. Presenting spectacular photographs of astronomical objects of the southern sky, all taken by author Stephen Chadwick, this book explores what peoples of the South Pacific see when they look up at the heavens and what they have done with this knowledge. From wives killing brothers to emus rising out of the desert and great canoes in the sky, this book offers the perfect blend of science, tradition and mythology to bring to life the most famous sights in the heavens above the southern hemisphere. The authors place this starlore in the context of contemporary understandings of astronomy. The night sky of southern societies is as rich in culture as it is in stars. Stories, myths and legends based on constellations, heavenly bodies and other night sky phenomena have played a fundamental role in shaping the culture of pre-modern civilizations throughout the world. Such starlore continues to influence societies throughout the Pacific to this day, with cultures throughout the region – from Australia and New Zealand in the south to New Guinea and Micronesia in the north - using traditional cosmology as a means of interpreting various aspects of everyday life.
