Activity 2: After a morning of learning about beached whales in Golden Bay, you and your group are driven to a nearby town, Nelson, to watch a special movie called ‘Whale rider.’ It is a famous movie about a young girl who was born and raised in New Zealand. Watch the following movie trailers for Whale Rider: Whale Rider trailer #1 and Whale Rider Trailer #2 and then write a summary of the movie on your blog. What is it about? Be sure to also give the movie a rating out of 5 based on the trailer [1 = bad movie, 2 = okay movie, 3 = pretty good, 4 = good movie, 5 = excellent movie].
When ‘Whale Rider’ finishes, you and your tour group enjoy a delicious meal in downtown Nelson before heading back to your hotel. You need to go to bed early because you have to get up at 4:30 a.m. the next morning to travel back to Farewell Spit to see a group (pod) of Hector’s Dolphins. It is going to be an early morning!
I am going to be honest and give this movie a 4/5. This movie is very interesting, I recommend this movie for anyone who is interested in whales or leadership.
In this movie, Only males are allowed to go to chiefdom in a Maori tribe in New Zealand. This ancient way is upset when the child picked to be the next chief dies at birth. His twin sister, Pai survives. At the age of 12, she joined the help of her grandmother and the training of her uncle to represent her right.
