Description

Waka

Abstract

This humble waka image was found tucked into the back of papers collected by Edward Shortland in the 1840s. There is no information recorded about this waka. The words that appear in the left hand corner are all that is documented. 'Waka Taua, He Tararo' ~ Adorned war canoe.
