  • CONTEMPORARY TRADITIONAL MAORI CULTURE, PART 2 HE &quot;THE MAORI CREATION STORY: THE SEPARATION OF HEAVEN AND EARTH&quot;  by:DAISY NICOLAS<3   source: George grey, 1956, Polynesian Mythology (ed.by William W. Bird): Christchurch, Whitecombe and Tombs Ltd.,250p. (BL 2615. G843p 1956); and MASTER RUBEN MEZA,2012
  • (according to Maori tradition) &quot;All humans are descended from one pair of ancestors, Rangi and Papa who are also called heaven and earth.&quot; 
  • &quot; In those days, Heaven and Earth clung closely together, and all was darkness.&quot; 
  • &quot;Rangi and Papa had six sons: (1) Tane-mahuta; The father of the forest and thier inhabitants.&quot; 
  • &quot; (2) Tawhiri-ma-tea, the father of winds and storms&quot;; 
  • &quot; (3) Tangaroa, the father of fish and reptiles &quot; ; 
  • &quot; (4) Tu-matauenga, the father of fierce human begings &quot;; 
  • &quot; (5) Haumia-tikitiki, the father of food that grows without cultivation &quot;; 
  • &quot; (6) and Rongo-ma-tane, the father of cultivated food &quot; 
  • &quot; In the beginning these six sons and all others beings lived in darkness for an extremely long time, able only to wonder what light and vision might me like. &quot;  
  • After a battle between the six sons, Tu-matauenga ate 4 of his brothers as food, sparing tawhiri-ma-tea, the father of winds and storms . 
  • This is why today people are fierce and have war, why people eat plants and animals, and why there are storms.
