In Māori mythology Tāne is one of the many offsprings of Papatūānuku (earth) and Ranginui (sky) In his frustration amidst living in the darkness, he led his siblings to push their parents apart. Eventually, they escaped the darkness and let the light into the world.
Tāne is an indispensable character in the Māori culture. He is the atua-god/guardian of mankind, birds, trees. In stories, we aspire to his level-headedness and persistence. His “big” job is to maintain the lush and diverse resources of the earth.
