Ko Ruaumoko te pootiki o ngaa tamariki a Rangi raaua ko Papa. Ka noho tonu ia ki te koopu o toona Maama. The rage and anger of Ruaumoko transpires in earthquakes and volcanic activity. Ruaumoko was not consulted in the separation of Rangi and Papa, thus exploded in anger and rage causing lava to flow and scar his mother. This created the first account of moko. In his rage his older siblings, Tangaroa, Waiookiterangi, Te Iho-rangi and his 4 children Te Ao-tuu, Te Ao-hore, Te Ao- taruaitu and Te Ao-matakaka are depicted helping to de-escalate the impact.
