Ko Taawhirimaatea teenei, te atua o ngaa hau. Naana hoki Te Whaanau Titi. Taawhiri was angry with his brothers for separating their parents and raged war on them with the strong forces of the wind. He attacked Tangaroa by throwing sea-life onto land. He attacked Tane by ripping apart forests and trees etc. This koorero we know as Te Pakanga o ngaa atua. He was so enraged that he tore his eyes out and threw them at the sky where they remain as Mata-ariki.
