Description of this Electronic Book

A book to treasure for young and old, Robyn Kahukiwa's
Nga Atua: Maori Gods takes the reader on a beautiful
visual journey while imparting simple and effective
explanations of the major Maori gods.
Robyn introduces the pantheon of Maori gods, and
explains the arena of life for which each deity is
responsible. For example:
Tumatauenga is the greatest warrior atua. His powers
are extreme strength and courage. He fights for truth
and justice.
This book is a beautiful introduction to some of the
unique deities that are part of Aotearoa/New Zealand's
cultural story, and affirms their continued relevance today.
