Waka Warriors - First Episode

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2015

In this first episode of the 2015 Māori Television series, three rangitahi answer a Facebook call for sailors who are up for reconnecting with nature and their culture, on a six week waka journey circumnavigating the North Island. The te ao Māori twist on the fish out of water reality show sees a trio of young Māori (including Boy discovery Rickylee Russell-Waipuka) set sail on Hoturoa Barclay-Kerr’s waka Haunui, where they’re separated from social media, face seasickness and rough seas, and learn the "ancient laws of voyaging". The winner gets the chance to join a voyage to Rarotonga.

Jeez, that was a bit of a waste of time: just should've tipped the food straight over the side and we wouldn't have had to wash the plate!
– Hoturoa Barclay-Kerr on one of the crew getting seasick
