The Maori Drill

When we got to the Museum we went to the Wharenui.In this photo my group and I are testing an ancient tool that the Maori People built.They used it to start fires instead of lighters.The fire provides light,food and heat.This tool is made of wood and a strong piece of string. It took a while for me to spin the drill and let it twirl and twirl until it worked.


  1. Hi Anamanu

    Thank you for sharing your experience at the Wharenui. I am so proud of you sticking with the challenge of getting the drill to work correctly ka pai!
