Synopsis ‘Avaiki Tautau is a work of historical fiction set 8-900 years ago when Polynesian navigators made their last and most spectacular journeys to settle the last habitable landmass on Earth – ‘Avaiki Tautau, later to be known as Aotearoa (New Zealand). The story follows Teipe, a boy otherwise destined to be a warrior had not he, his family and friends been chosen by his chief, Tamatea to accompany himself and others to leave their native Rarotonga and begin again in the new ‘avaiki – a future homeland that dangled beneath stars far to the southwest. On this eventful voyage, conflicted with fear but with a sense of adventure, Teipe learns many ocean navigation skills handed down from his ancestors. Leaving both Raratonga and their childhoods behind, Teipe and his friends grow in confidence and rise to the challenge.
