Abstract:

The Whangara people believe their ancestor Paikea was saved from drowning by riding home on the back of a whale. The tribal group has since granted leadership positions to the first-born males, believing them to be descendants of Paikea. But then a young mother dies in childbirth along with her newborn male son. His twin sister survives and the little girl, Pai, is brought up by her grandparents. Learning the skills of chiefdom from her uncle, Pai shows that she possesses a natural leadership ability.

"Una pequeña aldea Maori enfrenta una crisis cuando el heredero al título de líder de la tribu muere al nacer y únicamente sobrevive su hermana gemela, Pai. A pesar de ser despreciada p;or su abuelo e ignorada por la gente de la aldea, la ahora niña de doce años Pai continúa fiel a su legado y comienza a aprender las tradiciones y costumbres de su pueblo. Con una gracia impresionante, Pai encuentra la fortaleza necesaria para retar a su familia y retomar 1000 años de tradición para poder cumplir con su destino"--Container.
