In Maori mythology, Tane is the God of forests and of birds, and the son of Rangi and Papa, the Sky Father and the Earth Mother.
Tane received the name of Te Waiora because he brought Light and fresh air to this world and its people, and because of his fertilizing and vitalizing powers.
Tane Te Waiora is the protector of the forests and the birds and preserves the mauri (sacred life principle). He is also the source of knowledge and represents Light and the giver of life
