Storyboard Text

  • Tutanekai lived on Mokoia Island, Lake Rotorua, where of an evening he and his friend Tiki used to play – the one on a “horn”, the other on a “pipe”. 
  • The sound of this music could be heard across Lake Rotorua at Owhata and it charmed the beautiful and noble-born Hinemoa who lived there. When Tutanekai visited the mainland with his people, he met Hinemoa and they fell in love. 
  • The young man had perforce to return to his village, but the lovers arranged that every night he would play and that Hinemoa would follow the sound of his music to join him.
  • Tutanekai kept up a nightly serenade but Hinemoa's people, suspecting something was afoot, had hidden all the canoes. The maiden, however, was not to be deterred and, selecting six large, dry, empty gourds as floats, she decided to swim to the island.
  •  Guided by the strains of her loved one's music, Hinemoa safely reached the other shore and landed near a hot spring, Waikimihia, in which she warmed and refreshed herself – the pool is on Mokoia Island to this day.
  • Just at this moment Tutanekai sent his servent for water. This man disturbed the girl who, pretending to be a man, spoke in a gruff voice and, when she learned his erand begged for a drink from the callabash which she smashed as soon as she had had her fill. The servant then went back and reported to Tutanekai what had happend. He was ordered again and again,each time withthe same result until all te calabashes were broken
