9. Do one of the following:
- a. If possible, visit an old pā site and make a brief written report on what you could see.
- b. Research briefly the history and architecture of New Zealand’s native people (Māori) pā sites. Then, visit ruins or a reenactment site of native peoples in your region or a region you are visiting. Report on your experience.
- c. Research New Zealand (Māori) pā sites as well as native peoples villages and/or fortresses that were built in your locality. Write, draw, illustrate, create models, or explain what a pā was, and how it compares and contrasts with the sites built by native historic peoples in your region.
