Māori Legends, Stories and Myths
Māori legends, stories and myths are passed down through the generations by the tradition of oral history - the telling of ancient stories, myths and legends. This tradition continues today and is practised in schools, on many marae and by many parents. On many marae, elders teach tribal lore, etiquette and genealogy. They also retell the Māori legends that form the basis of Māori beliefs.
