Changes in Tokelau

The first change that has happened in Tokelau is the population.

The reason for this change is that when children get the opportunity to get education in the outside world they get fasanted about the things out there then they settle there and never come back.

The second change that has happened in Tokelau is there is global warming which means that the water is melting from ice in the south of the atlantic ocean which rises the sea level this is called climate change.

Roles of women in tokelau.

Ladies in Tokelau are now allowed to be present in the chiefs and council meetings/Fono. People are now understanding why women are expected at Fono/Meetings with men. Women are allowed to be particular roles in the island ,such as a policewoman and so on. I think women are allowed to do what they do. They respect their elders. Women also work well with their fellow members.

I also learnt is that when there kids are 16 or older they send them to the nearest countries for education. Most of them settle there

Camp Adair

At camp there was one particular thing i really liked ,was when we had to build a raft. I found it challenging working with team mates. It was fun because we learnt how to build a raft and what to do if we were lost in the middle of the sea. To be honest i didn't really wanna go to camp ,but i should of just said thanks for the opportunity.  With building the raft i just loved how we worked as a team and knew what we were doing. I loved the person who was teaching us how to build it ,he was very nice. For a thought there i think camp was average i don't really like leaving home ,but anyways it was pretty fun. My highlights were camp item that was the best part for entertainment and laughter. It challenging for me to sleep near people and leaving my stuff there thinking that someone will take some of my clothes. For me as a student of Tamaki i think that i begun to learn about different things and to  Conquer my fears. The year nines for next should bring more clothes due to water activities and raining days ,they should remember to bring covered shoes and a hat for safety reasons.

The Story Of Tamaki Makaurau (in my own Words)

         The Story of Tamaki Makaurau 
                  Tamaki Makaurau is the Maori name for Auckland.

Long ago there once lived some people called the Patupaiarehe. But they did not get along so to avoid getting into fights they splitted apart. One of the tribes (Iwi) lived in Hunua ranges down south and the other tribe lived on the other side out west on the Waitakere ranges ,so they were out of each others way. On some nights two young members from the tribes will often play a game. They would sneak out and race quietly to the other (iwi) to get a token and show there friends they been there. On one night Hui (Waitakere son) came home with nothing in his hands ,the other youngsters started teasing him for not coming home with nothing. So the next night Hui ran again but didn't return home with the rest of the boys ,so they became upset and angry and telling each other they should of take,n, good care of him. When the rangatira found out that Hui didn't return home with his fellow friends he was angry and demanded war to happen but so as they saw to people walking towards them it was Hui holding a young beautiful. So instead of bringing back a token he brought her. Hui's father was delighted and begun to ask questions he ask what was her name ,she replied 'I am Wairere the daughter of Hunua. When the chief heard that his daughter was over at the Waitakere ranges they came marching down hard at Waitakere. So Waitakere took magic out of the earth and cast over them and they began to fall down one by one. After he open the hole underneath the ground the god of volcanoes and earthquakes Appeared and was angry at Waitakere. And that's the story of Tamaki Makaurau.
