Tricking the Octopus

Kupe packed some food for a long journey to hunt the octopus down. He got the waka's ready for the long, tiring trip. Then they sailed out to sea.

One sunny, hot afternoon, an octopus emerged from the depths of the sea and wrapped his tentacles around the waka. Kupe had a good idea. He remembered he had packed some containers so they could get some water. His crew threw containers overboard and the octopus thought it was a person so he dived down to get it. Kupe had enough time to slay it.


  1. Kia Ora Jorja!
    I really liked your story about Kupe tricking the octopus. I haven't heard that story before.
    Kupe is a famous Maori explorer. You chose a great explorer. My favourite mariner is Christopher Colombus. He's magnificent.
    Keep up the great work!

  2. Loved your story Jorja, keep up the good work

    Love from mummy xox
