Thread: Whale Rider
It is about a Maori girl in New Zealand who is the granddaughter of the chief. Having no male heir, her grandfather starts to train boys from the tribe in the ancient ways in hopes of finding someone to be the future chief. But when the whales become beached it is a Maori girl who proves to have the gift that can save them.

Rent it, you won't regret it.
The Whale Rider book was written by Witi Ihimaera. And the 13-year-old star of the film, Keisha Castle-Hughes, was nominated for the Academy Awards Best Actress of 2003.
