Tāwhirimātea i runga o Te Moana Nui a Kiwa

Tāwhirimātea is the god of the weather, all weather.  His children are the winds and clouds, rain, mists and fog.  Tāwhirimātea stood up against his 6 brothers when he disagreed with their decision to separate their parents, Papatūānuku and Ranginui.

Te Moana Nui a Kiwa is the Great Ocean of Kiwa or the Pacific Ocean. The ocean that our tupuna explored as they settled new lands, including Aotearoa.

Look closely at this taonga in the photos. Can you see the waves of the ocean of Kiwa below and the billowing storm clouds of Tāwhirimātea above?  Yes?  Well than you’ll see exactly how this taonga got its name.  It named itself.

This taonga is a nod to the fierce ones, the strong ones, the independent ones, the ones not afraid to fight for what they believe in. Do you love one of those?
