Maui and the Sun

A Maori Tale


Tales of Maui have been told by the Maori for thousands of years. Here, Maui and his brothers decide to catch the sun and teach it a lesson. The sun, in its haste to get back to bed, raced across the sky each day, leaving only a few hours of sunlight for fishing. Armed with ropes and his enchanted weapon, he and his brothers travel to the edge of the pit where the sun slept to lay their trap.
