Rangi

The Sky god of Maoris in New Zealand is Rangi and his wife Papa is the earth mother. The Maori mythology says that Rangi clasped his wife Papa so tightly that their children were suffocating and Tane, god of the forests helped to separate them. Separated from his wife, Rangi cried and his tears filled the oceans, rivers and the lakes. Cited from Website: Kalpana
