Te Orokotīmatanga o te Ao is the story of the creation of the universe according to Māori. It begins with Io, the Supreme Being and the infinite state of nothingness before you are transported through aeons to the time of Ranginui (Sky Father) and Papatūānuku (Earth Mother). You are then introduced to some of their children who are the source and inspiration for the stories that follow.

Whether we believe in the existence of a higher being or not, most of us are curious to know what underpins the cultural differences amongst us.
