31.03.14 Whainga Ako: re-write a story from Aotearoa video.
In the beginning there were 10 Maori soldiers and the bravest most serious soldier his name was Maui.Before Maui and the 10 maori soldiers existed tanemahuta pushed Ranginui apart from Papatuanuku. One afternoon they all thought of rowing their waka because they have been working so hard. So they went rowing,they were getting tired and then a big wave came by and almost washed their waka away.They were trying to paddle to land they `were saying “hoe hoe hoe” faster faster.They got back, all of the 10 soldiers thanked Maui by getting all of things that he liked.
All of the 10 Maori soldiers and Maui went and found them a place to live in.So they set off and went hunting,they went and met at the same place as where they had started.They all said “if we cant find a place to live why dont we just make one” they all agreed with it.They all found some pices of broken branches and sticks.They all knew that their parents will be all right because their parents went to find them some food but when they went they saw a beutifull place called Auckland.In the evenning the 10 maori soldiers and Maui were getting hungry by talking about it but they had nun something fell outside of their house they buit and it was...Some fruit.There were oranges,lemonns,apples.Somthing gave them good luck because there were a basket full of seeds.Then the next day Maui’s brothers wanted to go paddeling but they didnt want Maui to go with them so they wispperd saying “we will go paddeling but dont let Maui know about what we are doing” Maui had good hearing skills.So he woke up before his brothers so he could go with them.So they went out to sea while Mauis brothers were a sleep Maui keft on paddeling untill they saw no land.Maui said “this is where we are fishing today” Maui’s brothers said to Maui “you cant use our lines” maui said “it’s alright i got mine” it was from his mothers jaw bone it wasn’t just a hook it was a special hook.He swang his hook then he threw it in the water he was pulling untill it came out .he was pulling harder and harder.he pulled it out and it wasn’t a fish it was land.When land came there came marae,trees,food.
They all knew not to be mean to Maui because Maui was the one who gave them all of the land.Papatuanuku,Ranginui, Maui and his brothers lived happily ever after.
