How Maui Fished up Aotearoa
In the story, Maui is fishing for food and throws the fishhook into the water. He waits for a long time because no fish are eating the bait off the line. After a long time Maui catches a huge fish resembling a stingray and brings it up to the surface of the water. The fish becomes the North Island of New Zealand, Maui’s boat becomes the South Island, and the Anchor Maui used to stay in place while he was fishing became Stewart Island.
