  • Contemporary Traditional Maori Culture, Part 2 ''The Maori Creation Story: The Separation of Heaven and Earth'' By: Julian Gomez, 1/23/2012 Per:4 Culture and Geography Source: George Grey, 1965, Polynesian Mythology(ed. by William W. Bird): Christchurch, Whitcombe and tombs Ltd., 250 p. (BL 2615. G843p 1956); and Mr. Ruben Meza, 2012
  • (According to Maori tradition) "all human are descended from one pair of ancestors, Rangi and pap, who are also called Heaven and Earth." 
  • "In those days, Heaven and Earth clung closely together, and all was darkness."  
  • "Rangi and Papa had six sons: (1) Tane-mahuta,the father of the forest and their inhabitants:; 
  • "(2)Tawhiri-ma-tea, the father of winds and storms":
  • "(3)Tangoroa, the father of fish and reptiles";
  • "(4)Tu-matauenga, the father of fierce human beings";
  • "(5) Haumia-tikitiki, the father of food a that grows without cultivation";
  • "(6) and Rongo-ma-tane, the father of cultivated food."
  • "In the beginning these six sons and all other beings lived in darkness for an extremely long time , able only to wonder what light and vision might be like.'
  • 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.
