Uenuku - God of rainbows

Uenuku is the god of rainbows. As a man he fell in love with the morning-mist maiden, Tairi-a-kohu. They married under the condition that Uenuku would not tell his people about her until their child had grown up. He tricked her into staying after dawn and when she found out she left him. Desolated he wandered the earth trying to find her, eventually Rangi the Skyfather took pity on him and changed him into a rainbow so that he could join his family in the sky.
