Ngā kaitiaki o te ao tūroa

Ngā kaitiaki o te ao tūroa

I āta wehewehea te ao e te Māori, kia noho he wāhi me tōna atua, he wāhi me tōna atua. Ko ēnei atua ngā tamariki a Ranginui rāua ko Papatūānuku, ngā kaitiaki tūturu o tēnā wāhi o te ao, o tēnā wāhi o te ao. Ko rātou te tīmatanga o tēnei mea te kaitiakitanga.

Mai i runga huri mā te taha matau: ko Tānemahuta, atua o te ngahere; ko Tūmatauenga, atua o te riri me te tangata; ko Tangaroa, atua o te moana; ko Haumia-tiketike, atua o te aruhe; ko Rūaumoko, atua o te rū whenua; ko Rongomātāne, atua o te kūmara; ko Tāwhirimātea, atua o ngā hau.
