Cook Island Culture

Today some Cook Islanders and people from the museum came to our school to talk to us about the history and culture. They told us how they designed their waka. They used the husk from the coconut to make a string and then they thread it through the wood to combine them together. But to make the wood stick together they use tree sap from the grapefruit tree. I learned that some Cook Islanders call a waka vaka are. Learning about the Cook Island culture was really interesting sahaly when they told us about how they make the waka.

    It's good that you learnt a lot from the Cook Islanders. I also enjoyed hears about their ancestors and what they used to build the waka. Did you use any of the things they brought?
