Maori Waka (Traditional war canoe), New Zealand

Waka brought divine gifts to the Maori First Nation. For this reason the waka inspire kotahitanga (unity) even today. My mind wonders that if Hawaii, Rapanui and Aotearoa were all reached by Waka what would have prevented them from reaching the Americas?

Maori Carving ...

Waitangi - Maori wood carving - intricate and subtle - in my opinion
