The Meaning of TE MOANA

Ko Tangaroa te Atua o te moana (Tangaroa is the God of the sea)

Māori are the tangata whenua (indigenous people of the land) of New Zealand and their culture is an integral part of New Zealand life. About 15% of the country’s population of 3.8 million is of Māori descent. Māori are a tribal people and their tribes are known as iwi.

Māori believe that water is an energy, with many moods. It can be calm and life-giving, or dangerous and destructive. This energy is called Tangaroa – ‘god of the sea’.

Māori people and their Polynesian ancestors lived close to the sea and relied on it for food and other resources.

The sea also has spiritual importance. In many traditions it is thought to be where all life began. People evolved from fish to human form. Traditional carvings of the ancestors show snake-like bodies, three fingers and large heads – a lot like amphibians, which can live on both land and water.
