Author. Stone Soup — 14/ 07/ 2021
To Māori, the vast and deep reaching expanse of the ocean is the domain of Tangaroa. A descendant of Rangi-nui the Sky-father and Papatūānuku the Earth-mother, Tangaroa is the father of all living creatures in the ocean; from chiefly whales to the plethora of fish, shellfish and crustaceans. This family of the sea is known as Te Tini a Tangaroa, the multitude of Tangaroa.
