Venetias waka hourua!
Kupe was the leader of the seven waka, and they were called Mataatua, Tainui, Te Arawa, Kurahaupo, Tokomaru, Aotea and Takitimu.
Over 80 people rowed the wakas and they were twin hulled waka.
They bought food and supplies to survive their dangerous, treacherous journey.
They bought things like bananas, coconuts, chickens and drinking water in
carved out gourds.
