|Great Māori migration waka|
In Māori tradition, Te Rīrino was one of the great ocean-going, voyaging canoes that was used in the migrations that settled New Zealand. The waka departed from Mahaena and was commanded by Potoru. It originally landed at Boulder-Bank on the Nelson Coast, and later sank in the Tasman Sea. Te Rīrino was the only one of the great waka that sank.
