All mana is sourced from the atua (gods). For Māori women this is called mana wahine which begins in recapturing the spirit of Hine-ahu-one, the first human created. Hine-titama is the daughter of Hine-ahu-one who fled to the underworld becoming Hine-nui-te-po. She is the female element who represents both life and death.
