The voyage of Polynesian ancestors to these shores has been called the “greatest migration story in the history of mankind”. But we hear very little about this feat of navigation compared to the voyages of European ancestors.

This episode is about Mātauranga | Knowledge, and whose version of history is being represented in our country. We talk to Ian Taylor (Ngāti Kahungunu), founder of Animation Research Ltd, about creating a digital narrative of the voyage his ancestors took from Hawaiki, and teacher Tamsin Hanly, about the school curriculum she’s created to help teachers actually teach our history.

This podcast was produced by Kayne Ngātokowha Peters and Anna Harcourt and edited by Richard Wills.
