Settlers coming to New Zealand

Over 1000 years ago people came in canoes from
East Polynesia to inhabbit New Zealand.
They arrived in canoes with either a double
hull and woven sails in the middle or
a single hull with a outrigger.

Trained navigaters sail by canoes to inhabbit
land. As they sail at night there is a sign that
people see to show them where land is.
The sign is a star that is in the sky but as soon
as its day time the sign changes to birds coming
to find food.
