Story of Kupe

Kupe and his friends went on a lengthy journey to find the threatening octopus who had been taking their bait. As they headed out to sea, they got caught in turbulent and dangerous waters. When Kupe looked into the water he saw a dark shadow. It was the octopus.

Emerging out of the water,the octopus grabbed onto the waka and started shaking it. A blanket of fear suddenly fell on the men. Kupe shook off his fear and told the men to throw gourds overboard. The octopus was fooled into thinking they were men long enough for Kupe to stab it and kill it.

Kupe's wife hoped that they didn't have to solve another problem like this again.

**Tyla used her terrific ideas, and with a little editing help from her teacher, was able to write a portion of Kupe's story. Hope you enjoyed it!
