After the recent signing of the Waka Deed ceremony by Toi Maori representatives at Volkenkunde Museum in Leiden, Netherlands, Toi Maori is now preparing to launch the new waka created by Master Waka Builder Hector Busby.
"Therefore Toi Maori has access to utilise the waka across Europe where we deem necessary to promote. This waka has all the cultural integrity elements added to the deed so that it will be looked after with care and respect."
Sea trials will be conducted by Kaihoe who have been selected by Robert Gabel, Chair of Nga Waka Federation.
