Ngā Tohunga Whakatere – The Navigators
Fly through space, follow the stars, traverse the largest ocean on Earth with Moko, and her ancestors.
This immersive planetarium film tells the story of Māori, Pasifika and European Navigation towards Aotearoa New Zealand through the eyes of a budding navigator, Moko.
Like Moana in the Disney film, she steps into the world of her Pacific ancestors and onto the decks of their voyaging canoes. As a scientist and explorer, she takes in the view of Earth from space and crosses cultures to witness the worlds of Captain Cook and the Dutch explorer, Abel Tasman.
With Moko, we stand alongside the navigators, explore their traditions, uncover their science, and wrap it all up in the space knowledge we have today.
The film encompasses the experiences of historical and present-day voyagers. Every storm, latitude, star path and sunrise has been lived.
