Since the birth of this great land, legends which extol the sacredness of Hikurangi have nurtured the minds and hearts of the descendants of Maui-Tikitiki-a-Taranga who is credited with many great feats that testify to his physical and intellectual prowess. His greatest exploit was fishing up the North Island of Aotearoa—New Zealand, known to all Maori as Te Ika a Maui (the great fish of Maui).

Mt Hikurangi is officially regognised as the first place in the world to greet the sun each day. 1000 metres above sea level on Hikurangi Mountain are nine carved Whakairo (sculptures) depicting Maui-Tikitiki-a-Taranga and his whanau (family). The massive Whakairo are a legacy for the future generations and a tribute to the local cultural heritage.
