A striking engraving of the head of 'Natai,' a Bream Bay chief, from the 'Atlas' (1833) of the 'Astrolabe' expedition Dumont d'Urville's artist, de Sainson, captures the rhythm of a Maori dance on the 'Astrolabe' at Tolaga Bay. Men, women, and children all appear to be enjoying the fun of this dance!


For several reasons, including lack of resource and inherent ambiguity, not all names in the NZETC are marked-up. This means that finding all references to a topic often involves searching. Search for Astrolabe as: "Astrolabe". Additional references are often found by searching for just the main name of the topic (the surname in the case of people).
