Paikea: Why doesn't he want me?
Porourangi: He's just looking for something that doesn't exist anymore.
Paikea: A new leader? They exist.
Paikea: It's not Koro's fault, that I'm a girl.
Porourangi: Her name is Paikea.
Koro: No, not that name.
Paikea: My name is Paikea Apirana, and I come from a long line of chiefs.
Koro: When she was born, that's when things went wrong for us.
Paikea: A long time ago, my ancestor Paikea came to this place on the back of a whale. Since then, in every generation of my family, the first born son has carried his name and become the leader of our tribe... until now.
Koro: Wise leader, forgive me. I am only a fledgling new to flight.
Paikea: They were waiting for their new leader... but he died.
Paikea: My Koro wished in his heart that I'd never been born. But he changed his mind.
