Maui’s rope


It was Maui who captured the sun, making him travel more slowly across the sky. With friends and magic rope, woven out of haraekeke Maui waited for the sun to rise. They then threw Maui’s ropes over the sun and held on for dear life. Maui’s magic was so strong that rope did not burn. The sun struggled and fought but soon tired and gave in. He promised to travel more slowly across the sky to give people and land more time in the day.
