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. She is a daughter of Tāne. She fled to the underworld because .... The red colour of sunset comes from her. Finish the myth - And that is why today red is the colour of the sunset.
