View in the Bay of Islands showing the Waikare River. A Maori man is seated on hillside in the right foreground, with a musket on the ground beside him. To his right is a Maori man is carving a canoe prow and a woman is seated on the far right. Behind the group is a tree that appears to be being used as a storage platform or pataka. The beach in the foreground is English Bay with three canoes in the water, and Okiato Point is across the river on the left. Despite the title, the picture does not show the Kawakawa River
