MAUI
MAUI MYTH
MAUI WAS A MAN WHO PROBABLY EXISTED.
HE APPEARED AS AN OCEANIC HERCULES.
HE WAS MAUI, THE WONDER WORKER WHO CATCHES
THE SUN, BRINGS FIRE TO MAN, RAISES ISLANDS
FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR.
HIS MOTHER WAS HINA, AND HE WAS DIRECT
DESCENDANT OF WAKEA, THE FATHER OF ALL LIVING
CREATURES.
IT WAS SAID THAT MAUI WAS ABANDONED BY HIS
MOTHER IN A SEAWEED BOAT BECAUSE HE WAS
BORN WEAK.
HINA MAUI´S MOTHER
WAKEA
FATHER OF ALL LIVING CREATURES
CREATION OF THE ISLANDS OF
HAWAII
MAUI
WAS TAKEN UNDER THE WAVES
RAISED BY THE OCEANIC GODS.
AND
HE WAS GIVEN WISDOM AND DIVINE POWERS.
ONE STORY TELLS THAT MAUI WAS FISHING UP
LAND FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR WITH A MAGIC
HOOK. BUT HE LOOKED BACK AS THE LAND
EMERGED FROM THE SEA AND THE MAGIC WAS
BROKEN. THE LAND MASS WAS DIVIDED INTO
THE 5 SMALL ISLANDS OF HAWAII.
MYTH OF MAUI AND LA
IN THE EARLY TIMES, THE DAYS WERE VERY SHORT
AND THE PEOPLE NEVER HAD ENOUGH LIGHT TO
COMPLETE THEIR WORK.
MAUI WANTED TO HELP HIS MOTHER, BECAUSE SHE
NEEDED MORE DAY LIGHT TO FINISH HER WORK.
HIS GRANDMOTHER, WHO WAS BLINDED BY THE LIGHT
OF LA, «THE SUN GOD», LIVED IN THE BIG CRATER OF
A VOLCANO CALLED HALEAKALA (THE HOUSE OF THE
SUN).
MAUI
CLIMBED TO THE HALEAKALA. HE WANTED
TO CATCH THE SUN WITH A NET THE NEXT MORNING.
HE PRAYED TO THE GOD OF THE OCEAN TO COOL
HIM DURING THE FIGHT AGAINST THE SUN.

MYTH OF MAUI AND LA (CONT.)
THE NEXT MORNING LA APPEARED ACROSS THE
SKY. MAUI´S NET SURROUNDED THE SUN. THE
SUN STRUGGLED TO BE FREE BUT HE COULDN´T.
IN THE END, MAUI AND THE SUN REACHED A
COMPROMISE. THE SUN, AGREED TO MOVE MORE
SLOWLY ACROSS THE SKY AND THE DAYS
WOULD BE LONGER WITH MORE LIGHT. SO
MAUI RELEASED LA FROM HIS NET.
MYTH OF MAUI AND LA (CONT.)
THE NIGHT SKY ALSO HAVE THE MARK OF
MAUI BECAUSE THE CONSTELLATION SCORPIUS
RESEMBLES THE MAGICAL HOOK THAT MAUI
USED TO BRING UP LAND FROM THE OCEAN.
THERE ARE PROBABLY AS MANY MAUI STORIES
AS THERE ARE ISLANDS IN THE OCEAN, BUT
THERE IS ONLY ONE ISLAND NAMED FOR HIM,
HAWAIIAN´S MAUI.
SCORPIUS COSTELLATION
RESEMBLES THE MAGICAL HOOK THAT MAUI USED TO BRING UP LAND FROM THE OCEAN
CONCLUSION
• THERE ARE MANY MYTHS ALONG HISTORY.
• I HAVE CHOSEN THIS HAWAIIAN MYTH BECAUSE I
LIKE THE OCEAN AND THE VOLCANOS AND ALSO THIS
MYTH IS SIMPLE TO UNDERSTAND.
