RANGIAlso known as RANGINUI
God of the Sky.He fell madly in love with PAPA, the Earth Mother Goddess. In the passion of their embrace, the Earth and the Sky were so tightly cuddled together that there was no room to move.
This was somewhat embarrassing when their children RONGO, TANE and TU were born. Faced with a lifetime of stunted growth and intense parental pressure, the kids decided that something had to be done. So TANE tried to force his parents apart. He pushed and pushed for days, weeks and years until PAPA and RANGI slowly parted company. Light entered the world for the first time and plants began to grow.
