In this simple fictional recount, a young Māori boy, Kalani, describes an event that will be familiar to some students: gathering kaimoana with the whānau. The story demonstrates important aspects of the relationships within the whānau, including respecting elders and sharing of knowledge and tikanga (cultural concepts) associated with gathering kaimoana. The story illustrates the passing on of knowledge and experience from older whānau members (Koro, Dad) to the next generation.
