In Maori traditions(Aotearoa) Taranga, the mother of Māui, stands over her newborn son, who floats on the ocean. Above her the baby lies on his mother's hair. When he was stillborn she set him into the sea wrapped in her tikitiki, a topknot of hair. Māui became known as Māui-tikitiki-a-Taranga. On one side of Taranga Māui, as a kererū, looks down on his father, and on her other side are Māui's brothers. In this tradition, Māui washed ashore and was raised by his grandfather.

Hine-nui-i-te-po (Ancestress of the Night) by June Northcroft Grant:  Hine-nui-te-pō ("Great woman of night") is a goddess of night and death and the ruler of the underworld in Māori mythology.

Maori Women In Solidarity With Idle No More by Robyn Kahukiwa

An update from whaea Robyn Kahukiwa the artist for this image. Indigenous uprising includes brining to the fore all the issues and concerns that we have.

RANGI AND PAPA - DEEP BREATHE IN, DEEP BREATHE OUT.  Nestled within a Pounamu river flowing from deep within and around Papatuanuku.  Dew drops delicately poised atop emerald-green fernlets belonging to the graceful Ponga, curl gently down their silky surface onto the spindly dark branches of the Manuka tree, like shiny silver marbles, glistening in the dawn.  Captured in one single droplet, the reflection of a new dawn breaking.
