Summary
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.

Learning the skills of chiefdom from her uncle, Pai shows that she possess a natural leadership ability
