Migration, push and pull factors

Push and pull factors are when someone wants to leave the country because their is a reason why they are leaving. The reason could be economic, political, cultural and environmentally. My Nana had left Raro Tonga when she was 16 because she needed to get more money for her family back at Raro Tonga. She also find out while in Raro Tonga their was a job awaiting for her. When she arrived in New Zealand she had the job but she didn't really know how to speak English, so she went school in New Zealand and in a year she was really good at speaking English.

Tokelau is on the northwest of cook Island, Tokelau is a country located on Southern Pacific Ocean. It is also 500 km away from Samoa and they had found the name in 1976 and the official name was Tokelau Island. Most of that live their travel by boat to Tokelau or to another country like New Zealand or Australia. Tokelau has 3 atolls with no harbours and theirs is not much space for the animals to live so they travel out to the see onto little rocks and travel back when the tide comes in and also when they fish. When they fish they go early in the morning then when the sun rises they go back to the village but it is really hard to get onto the shore. They have changed by their technology from people who travelled to give them signal for them to call people from all around the world. They are also learning more culture stuff from other country's like Samoa and the Tokelau are now Citizens of New Zealand.

River talk

On Thursday we walked a small way to see a river, we had went to see the river because it was getting polluted and was getting really smelly. We were also talking about the animals they were getting harmed in this river. Also we were lucky to see one animal that lived in the lake and it was eels. We were also got to see amazing performance from cultures and from Tamaki College students. We got a look at some of best views that I have ever seen and saw some really cool animals there as well.
