Description

It’s nearly Christmas time and a boat is riding the waves towards the top of Aotearoa New Zealand. On board are Māori and Europeans, as well as excitable horses and impatient cows.

In December 1814 a large crowd of Māori gathered at a hui to celebrate their first Christmas.

There was no Santa Claus nor any reindeer at this gathering, but there were some amazing gifts. Step back into the early 1800s and find out how the first Christmas was celebrated in Aotearoa New Zealand. You can read about this unique part of Aotearoa New Zealand’s history in ‘The First Kiwi Christmas’.

Children will enjoy finding Paki on each page as they go on a journey to see how Māori and a group of early settlers celebrated Aotearoa New Zealand’s first Christmas over 200 years ago.
