He Hokinga Whakaaro - reflecting on the First Encounters of Tangata Whenua and Cook in 1769, when New Zealand history changed forever

This field trip is a virtual journey back in time. You will stand on the very beach where, centuries ago, one of the first Māori waka landed in New Zealand. You will scan historic landmarks from a boat in Poverty Bay where Captain Cook anchored the Endeavour almost 250 years ago. In between you will visit a marae, identify local plants collected during Captain Cook's voyage, and find out about traditional use of plants by Māori. This trip fits well with big ideas like whakapapa, identity, communities, environments, taonga.
