Narrative of how Maui slows the sun rewritten by Vaivasa
Maui and the sun
The sun was going to fast and the people in the island couldn’t do much work. They had only a little bit of day time and more night time.
Maui had a bright idea and he called out to his brothers to come and help him. So Maui taught his brothers how to tie a knot to trap the sun. Maui got a special rope. Once Maui and his brothers tied up a strong, tight knot on the sun, the sun slowed down and everyone was proud of Maui.
People in the village were happy because they had enough of time during the day.
