KAHAWAI ART

Recollections of Fishing at Motu
The subject matter is the kahawai fish, a delicacy of the East Coast people. These sketches are based on the children and their experiences with the fishing and preparing of the fish for bottling. The background reflects the Motu river and its environment.

He kaha te haunga ika.
He uaua te hii ika.
Mamae katoa nga waewae
i nga pohatuhatu o te akau.




He huamo te moana.
He pohatuhatu te akau.
He ngahau te kaukau.
He makariri te wai.
