The god of the forest grew like a tree but bigger and then they got separated. Now the father ranginui is now up really high and now he is the sky and his wife papatuanuku is now on the ground. So we are stepping on her.So when they got split up ranginui the sky was crying and it become rain and I think when papatuanuku is anger the ground shakes and it become an earthquake. Then the god of lightning and thunder felt sorry of his parent so he cried and when he cry’s it is lightning it fell on his hands so he threw his tear to the heavens.It became stars so once a year at the end of May or the start of June just before dawn the 7 sister appears in the sky and it is a happy news of the maori.Maori had a different news years to everyone else. Something ranginui when he cries it becomes raindrops and so whenever it rains I think of ranginui and papatuanuku about the story about it.Ranginui crying because he miss his wife and how lonely he is in sky by himself.
