Tane is a prominent deity in Maori mythology. Tane is often depicted as the son of Ranginui, the sky father, and Papatuanuku, the earth mother. He is known as the god of forests and birds, and is also associated with the creation of the world.
According to Maori tradition, Tane used his great strength to push his parents apart, creating the space and light that allowed life to flourish on earth. He is also credited with creating the first woman, Hineahuone, from clay, and is revered as the progenitor of all humankind. In addition to his role as a creator god, Tane is also revered as a protector of the natural world and is associated with the conservation and protection of forests and wildlife.
