In the beginning there was Rangi and Papa and they had many children. As the children grew older they needed more room to move.
One day, Tumatauenga decided he wanted to part his parents, this would allow them to have light and also they could move around freely. All of the Gods/brothers tried to part their parents, with the exception of Ruaumoko who was a baby in his mother’s womb together with Tawhirimatea, who opposed the idea. Firstly, Tumatauenga tried & failed and finally it came to Tanemahuta who was successful.
Tawhirimatea who opposed went to live with his father and he periodically punishes his brothers with storms. In addition, there was Ruamoko who still resides with his mother and from time to time he also punishes Tane with his earthquakes.
