Ka whakaahuatia hoki a Māui ki tō te kererū āhuatanga

Ko Māui te tupuna nāna te motu nei i hī ake i te moana, nō reira te ingoa i tapaia mō te motu nei, ko Te Ika-a-Māui. I whānau ia ki te ākau o te moana nui, he mea whiu ia e tōna whaea e Taranga ki te hukahuka o te tai, he mea hikihiki e te ngaru takai atu takai mai, nā Te Apuhau ia i whakahoki ki uta. Nā tōna tupuna, nā Tamanui-ki-te-rangi ia i kawe ki te whare, i whakairi ki runga noi ai, kia ngaua ake e te auahi, e te mahana, nā reira ka ora ia.

He tiki ahi tā Māui i haere ai ki a Mahuika

Nā Māui i whakairi te rā, te marama, me ngā whetū ki te kikorangi, nāna anō hoki te rā i here kia āta haere ai, kia roa ai te mahinga a te tangata i ētahi oranga mōna. Ka taea e Maui te whakaahua i a ia ki te āhua o ngā manu katoa me te hoki mai ki tō te tangata āhua. Ka mate a Māui, he tinihanga nōna ki tōna tupuna, ki a Hine-nui-te-pō i mate ai.
