Tama-nui-te-ra - God of the Sun

Tama-nui-te-ra (Tamanuitera) is the God and personification of the sun. He was caught in a snare by Maui who beat him to make him travel more slowly across the sky. He is said to be the husband of Arohirohi, goddess of mirages or the husband of the Summer maid, Hineraumati, and the Winter maid, Hinetakurua.
