Maui’s wife, Hina was having a bath in the water hole. Suddenly “Aaargh” screamed Hina. There was an eel chasing her because somehow the eel fell in love with her and thought she was very beautiful.
So Maui got really jealous and he decided to kill the eel. Maui planned to use an axe to chop the eel. When Maui saw the eel in the water he ran up to the eel and began chopping it.
Finally the eel was destroyed and the body became vines, the hair became trees, the head became fish and the tail became tuna. So Maui and his wife lived happily ever after.
