Storyboard Text

  • Among the red kelp...
  • "If you take it from the sea it will die...the sea gives it life and beauty."
  • When I was a boy...
  • Pa
  • Hey, Rongo! Come on! Good day for kai moana today!
  • Don't you kids come too far out!
  • "I see the seahorse again...shimmering and luminous with light. And I remember the reef again..." Remembering dad's words: "As long as we respect it, it will continue to feed us."
  • One weekend...
  • DO NOT take seafood from the reef
  • "Something's wrong...is there a shark out there?"
  • Relatives from the pa made their way to the reef. Rongo tried to twist his wife's arm to let them forget their chores and follow them to collect pipi.
  • Aue...Aue...
  • "We have lost our aroha for you and our respect for your life."
  • "...much of the fun of going to the reef was because they could be with their friends and relations. It was a good time for being family again and for enjoying our tribal ways."
  • Through dead waving seaweed...
  • "We have poisoned the land and now we feed our poison into your waters."
  • First the land and now our food,...the sea is polluted. If we eat the seafood, we may get sick.
  • An old woman began to cry out a tangi to the reef. Everyone bowed their heads...the sea boiled yellow with effluent...the stain curled like fingers around the reef.
  • The seahorse searches desperately for "clean and crystal waters."
