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.

Narrative of How Maui slows down the sun rewritten by Keren


Maui slows down the sun

Tamanui Te Ra, the sun was going quickly across the sky.

He was always going fast past Maui’s village .Maui and his brothers thought of a plan. They made a special rope and they struck the sun until it felt the pain and cried with anger.

From that day on Tamanui Te Ra promised to go slowly through the heavens. The people were happy because they had longer days and could do more.
