The story of Ranginui and Papatuanuku

Ranganui is The Sky. The Māori legend says that Papatūānuku (The Ground) was torn away from Ranganui and formed the vault of the heavens. When Māori looked up at the sky, they saw Te Rā (The sun). Te Rā's journey was slowed down by Maui who caught Te Rā with a rope and slowed him down.
