A MYTH ABOUT WHY POLYNESIA IS MADE UP OF MANY ISLANDS

At first the Polynesian islands were nothing more than fish swimming freely in the infinite spaces of the sea. Then, one day, the god Maui had the idea to assemble in a single parcel of land all the flakes scattered in the vast expanses of the ocean. He prepared his fishhook and asked his brothers to put in the water the large canoe. When they were on the high seas, Maui threw his fishing line and began to sing to give more strength and more power to his fishhook. So it was that, while everyone was asleep, he managed to catch a number of islands, which rested on his nets which lies inside the hull. When the largest of all fish, Tahiti, emerged from the depths, flapping his tail and shaking water, the brothers awoke with a start and cried out : “Look, Maui! That’s not a fish; it’s an island!”. At that moment, all the fish caught were frightened and dived again into the water, scattering everywhere.
It was from that day that the Polynesian islands do not form a unique land, but many flakes scattered across the Big Ocean, Moana-nui.
