TAMA-NUI-TE-RA RING"Great Son of the Sun"
In the Maori language, Tama-nui-te-ra means "Great Son of the Sun". The Maori word for "sun" or "day" is ra, Tama means “son” and Nui means “great”.Tama-nui-te-ra is the God and personification of the sun and has been known to be connected with good health by cultures all over the world.When the ancestors of the Maori left the homeland of Irihia and Hawaiiki to seek a new home across the ocean, their leader said - “Me whai tatou i a Tama nui te ra.” (“Let us follow the sun”).
