Tāne me Ngā Kete O Te Wānanga


Io, the Supreme Being sends two heavenly guardians down to Earth to find which of Ranginui and Papatūānuku’s sons could ascend to Te Toi-o-ngā Rangi and fetch the Three Baskets of Knowledge and the Two Sacred Stones, Rehutai and Hukatai.

They assign the mission to the youngest of the siblings, Tāne, and this story tells of how he prevails on the journey and mankind emerges into a World of Enlightenment and Understanding.

This title is the fourth in a series of graphic novellas designed to re-tell the traditional stories of New Zealand’s Māori people in an innovative and contemporary format.

The language resource was produced with the support of Mā te Reo and Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori to promote the use of te reo Māori in Aotearoa | New Zealand.
