  • About the Book
  • A book to treasure for young and old, Robyn Kahukiwa’s Ngā Atua: Māori Gods takes the reader on a beautiful visual journey while imparting simple and effective explanations of the major Māori gods.

    Robyn introduces the pantheon of Māori gods, and explains the arena of life for which each deity is responsible. For example:

    Tumatauenga is the greatest warrior atua. His powers are extreme strength and courage. He fights for truth and justice.

    This book is a beautiful introduction to some of the unique deities that are part of Aotearoa/New Zealand’s cultural story, and affirms their continued relevance today.
