Description: Koha ō Tē Waipounamu ~ The gift of the green stream Papatūānuku (Grandmother Earth) asked her youngest child Rūaumoko (Keeper of the Fire Mountains and Earthquakes) for a gift for her husband Ranginui (Grandfather Sky). After much searching within his mother’s fiery insides, he came across a mountain of Puehutea (white powder). When he walked through the powder, the heat of this volcano keepers body, turned the powder into a green liquid stream, he named it Taiponui ō Tē Uruwahia. He was pleased and went to get his mother to show her this wonder. On returning the green stream had turned into a solid green mass of stone that reflected all the colours of the rainbow. He was dismayed yet Papatūānuku still loved this pounamu te koha for Ranginui (Gift for Grandfather Sky). [Sourced from ‘Whispers of Waitaha’ pg. 85].
