Curiosity led a number of the sons to venture out from the warmth and security that the parents provided. They discovered beauty and space outside, but also chilling and adverse weather. They hastily returned to the protection of home, as they had always known it.
More time passed before murmurings about dissatisfaction arose amongst the siblings. Some of them aspired to leave the confines of darkness and limited space while others wanted to stay. But momentum and support of the idea to go built, until all that was left to decide was how they would separate Ranginui and Papatūānuku.
Whether we believe in the existence of a higher being or creator or not, most of us are curious to know what underpins the cultural differences amongst us.
This is a series of graphic novellas designed to re-tell the traditional stories of New Zealand’s Māori people in an innovative and contemporary format.
We’ve created these at a time when the Māori culture and language are receiving a lot of attention in the public and private sectors of business and education. Our aim is to give people, meaningful insights into what underpins Māori values and principles.
This series also features synchronized text and audio in both the Māori and English languages, as well as the Swipe-to-Read™ function which allows the reader to hear and play back the story at their own pace.
* English and te reo Māori narration
* Read-to-me and read-it-myself options
* Background music that can be turned on and off
This language resource was produced with the support of Mā te Reo and Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori to promote the use of te reo Māori in Aotearoa | New Zealand.
