From the Archives: The Return of Lata

Updated: Jul 8, 2020

In answer to recent requests, here is a scan of the 1999 Sailing New Zealand article “The Return of Lata: An Authentic Polynesian Voyaging Canoe Sails Again,” by Dr. Mimi George with Paramount Chief Koloso K. Kaveia of Taumako.  The second half of the article is a brief statement of the 30 Steps to Build a Te Puke.

You can view and download a PDF of the article here.
