This page is from an original manuscript by Te Rangikāheke, a renowned leader and scholar from the Ngāti Rangiwewehi tribe. In it Te Rangikāheke outlines a traditional view of the separation of heaven from earth. This view holds that Tāne was the only one of the children of Papatūānuku (Earth) and Ranginui (Sky) that was able to separate them.
