Maori art recount

Last week at school room 15 designed Maori art around the native bush.

First we got a pencil and we design our beautiful Maori art. Secondly we chosed dark and light green - brown- blue pastels and colour in our drawing. Lastly we stuck our outstanding Maori art on the black pieces of paper and we put green glitter on our art. 

Next I wrote my own Maori legend and it was about Pania and the Taniwha. Finally I went online and down load some native NZ bush pictures and I drew my characters and animated my story.

Pania and the Taniwha

Pania and the Taniwha

Once upon time there lived a Maori girl called Pania and she lived in a Whare near the bushes. The bushes were covered with lovely Ratas and Tall kauri trees. 

One early morning Pania goes to her friends the rat's. Pania loves her friends the rat's because they eat the bugs in her house. But the rat's were terrified because a scary Taniwha had tried to eat them.

The next day Pania feels upset about the rat's. So Pania go's to the God of the stream RiverNui. Pania said to RiverNui "can you please stop the Taniwha from eating the rats ". RiverNui said to the Taniwha "can you please go hunt somewhere else.So the Taniwha agreed with RiverNui and the Taniwha promised to never hunt the rat's again.
