Atua is the term used in Maori culture to refer to gods and goddesses. In traditional Maori beliefs, Atua were seen as powerful, supernatural beings that controlled various aspects of the natural world. They were believed to be the source of all life and to hold great power and influence over the people. Maori people would often turn to the Atua for guidance and protection, and would offer prayers and sacrifices in their honor. The Atua were also seen as important cultural ancestors, and were believed to have played a significant role in the creation of the world and the Maori people. In this way, the Atua were an integral part of Maori spirituality and culture.
