1.In the ancient times they used to kill whales and obtain whale bone, oil and the meat for food to survive.Whaling is when you hunt them and take them down also ripping them apart to get to the fat. Men and women use the whale bone and teeth for ornaments and a taonga which is a special Maori necklace.

Finally when it was possible to build huge strong and faster whaling ships they put them on a big scale. The people that hunt whales put the meat into six containers and transported them to Japan. Whales were almost extinct because there were hardly any more whales and Greenpeace voted to not take their life away.

About my mum and aunty

My mum is the greatest and likes to watch x factor and play games like battlefield 2 and need for speed on her own xbox 360 and xbox 1. She is 43 years old and turning 44 this year on December. My mum really does like to drink coffee all the time even before she goes to bed. She gives me a lot of money.

My aunty likes to go to the movies and she eats a lot of popcorn because that is her favourite dessert. She is 56 years old and she still likes watching rugby and soccer. My aunty likes to go bowling to challenge random people and she even gambles. She gets very cranky if we go outside.
