Te Wehenga: The Separation of Ranginui and Papatūānuku

Written in te reo Māori and English, and illustrated by, Mat Tait


Te Wehenga is a stunning retelling of the separation of Ranginui, sky-father, and Papatūānuku, earth-mother.

Te reo Māori and English are woven together in a seamless bilingual approach to the text, with the visceral illustrations powerfully underlining the mana of the story.


Ko Mat Tait tētahi ringatoi kua whakawhiwhia ki ngā tohu, ā, nāna ngā kupu, nāna tonu ngā whakaahua o te pukapuka ātaahua nei mō te orokotīmatanga o te ao, hei pānui mā te reanga hou.

Kua whiriwhiria te reo Māori me te reo Pākehā, e māmā ai te whai haere i ngā kupu, ā, ka whakatinanahia te mana o te kōrero e ngā whakaahua e kaha hāpai ana i ngā kupu.
