Surviving Rēkohu

Surviving Rēkohu.

by Susan Paris

Meet the new generation of hunter-gatherers on Rēkohu...

Every year, the students from Room Four at Te One School spend a week camping at Plum Tree. No one seems to mind that the school is just down the road – and if they really wanted, they could walk back to their desks in ten minutes. On Rēkohu, nearly any spot is a perfect place to pitch a tent, which is one of the reasons the kids say the Chathams is a great place to live.
