Tane and the stars
Long long ago one dark and windy night Tane looked at the pitch black skies and thought the sky should have some light. He made nga whetu stars. He used metal and lava from volcanos and a dash of lightning from the sky. He mixed them all together and chanted a magical spell that he had learned from his father. Then he put the stars and put them into his magic basket of flax. After that he flashed into the sky and scattered the flashing stars into the pitch black sky. Then he returned to the Earth.The people thanked Tane for brightening up the sky.
