with Eugene Fraser.
Every country has its fabulous hero. The English have King Arthur. But to the Maori people of New Zealand there is no one to equal their hero, Maui. When the South Island of New Zealand lay at the bottom of the ocean, It was Maui who fished it up and placed it where it is today - or that is how the story goes.
