Ukutoia Drawing

For extension we had to draw what we thought Maungarei looked like before European settlers arrived. The Maori travelled using mainly waka and this is because Tamaki is filled with lots of water ways and streams, the Maori would carry items for trading and getting from the top of New Zealand to Tamaki or anywhere that had water. The Maori tribes that live in Tamaki were peaceful from 1750-1820. In my drawing you can see the water stream above Maungarei and the houses on Maungarei are for scouting, so they could see other tribes traders and it was a great advantage for the tribes.
