Tane Mahuta is the God of Forest and Trees. At the beginning of the World, it was he who separated his parents from one another in order for the World to receive light.

Tane takes the aspect of a giant with a skin as dark as wood, and a kind demeanor that fits is role of life giver. Protector of World Trees, he taught man how to build houses and other wooden tools. Of all the creatures and animals he protects, he always had a soft spot for birds and killing them unnecessarily can anger the calm giant who split heaven and earth.
Tane Mahuta (sometimes called Tane) is both wise and witty. He acts as the pantheon voice of reason, ready to help his brothers and sisters at all costs. Caring and powerful, he is one of the most active Gods, relentlessly helping his people move forward.

In the past, Tane was looking for a wife and found Hine-nui-te-pō, a young but powerful Godborn. With her, he had many children. The Goddess then realized than Tane was actually her father and, in shame, went down to the Maori Underworld to rule it for eternity. When Tane came to her, begging her to come back, she instructed him that he would take care of the living, and she, of the dead.

Since then, Tane Mahuta has spent a lot of time in the world, protecting all forms of life and ensuring prosperity to his people. As a tree doctor, a zoologist, an old wise elder teaching the young or a tough colossus building houses for the poor, Tane is always helping without leading. His Godborns are just as compassionate and efficient, believing that being good is about acting smart, not overthinking. They find elegant solutions to seemingly impossible tasks and value life above all else.
