Narrative of Maui and Irawaru rewritten by Alexis


Once upon a time Maui’s little sister Hinauri got married to Irawaru. He was always annoying Maui.

Maui and Irawaru went fishing. Irawaru used barbed wire on his hook to fish. Maui said that there was something on the hook. They pulled out a fish and Maui realised that he was right. Maui caught the kingfish and Irawaru behaved as though he caught the fish.

Maui reshaped Irawaru into a dog by jumping on the waka that was on top of Irawaru. Hinauri got upset when she saw Irawaru and jumped into the ocean and married another man.

Hi Alexis, I have enjoyed reading your retelling of this story. It has quite a bizarre ending though- jumping into the water and marrying another man! Look forward to hearing more from you.
