Storyboard Text

  • Kahu wanted the attention from her great-grandfather but he is too busy taking care of the tribe, the Maori in Whangara, New Zealand.
  • So Kahu helps the whale rider get back to the ocean when he got stuck in a cave on the beach (the whale rider is thought to represent the health of the tribe; if the whale rider dies, the tribe dies)
  • Kahu’s great-grandfather recognizes how special Kahu is and decides it is not important for the next tribe leader to be a boy and tells Kahu to take her rightful place among the tribe as the next leader.
