66 LÉGENDE POLYNÉSIENNE/POLYNESIAN LEGEND Māui, Slayer of Monsters Māui is the name of a family of mythical heroes who travelled the Pacific Ocean from East to West and North to South, leaving stories of their incredible feats wherever they went. Called Atalaga and Kisikisi 1 in Tonga, here we refer to them as Māui the Elder and his son Māui the Younger. They visited the islands delivering humankind from terror, as these inhabited islands were also plagued by fearsome flesh-eating monsters. On one such island a giant rat was not satisfied to just feed on the coconuts, fruits and roots of taro and yam it found in the plantations. It also attacked humans, carrying them off to its lair and devouring them. The two Māuis decided to rid the island of this scourge and went in search of its burrow. The rat which was sitting with its snout poking out of its hole, it saw the two Māuis approaching and launched itself at them. Armedwith a spear and a war-club, they peppered the animal with blows. The rat, astonished by their reaction and startled at being hurt, disappeared into its hole. It was sure that no-one could catch it at the very bottom of its burrow. But it did not know what it wasup against. By the sheer force of their powerful arms and each using a large branch as a spade, they dug. When they had nearly reached the bottom, Māui the Elder told his son  : « Keep digging, I’ll go to the air vent to catch it when it escapes. » The son replied  : « No ! You will dig and I will wring its neck on the other side. » As he continued to dig, the father ranted  : « What an arrogant child ! He’s in danger of getting eaten ! » The rat fled by the air vent, where 1 From legends collected by Christine Perez and published in D’île en île Pacifique. (Ed. Klincksieck). Māui the Younger awaited. As soon as the rat poked its head outside, Māui the Younger caught it by the throat and strangled it. And so the ferocious rat was slain. On another island, a giant chicken was attacking humans, killing and eating them. It searched endlessly for new prey. It did not notice the two Māuis when they arrived. They had time to armthemselves with two large stones and sneakup on the beast. Māui the Younger threw a first stone that did nothing but glance the chicken’s wing, scaring it. It took flight. He threw a second stone that wounded one of the chicken’s thighs and wings. The chicken fell into the water and swam towards the neighboring island using its remaining leg and wing. Māui the Elder threw two stones that struck true. The younger Māui pickedup other stones to finish the job. The chicken’s corpse washedup on the beach at the same moment our heroes arrived to check that the deed was done. With the terrifying monsters gone, the inhabitants came out of the caves, dens and woods where they had been hiding to build themselves an abode, a place to sleep, others started to grow food-plants, raise pigs, yet others gathered to eat and meet. They raised marae on the boundaries between their known environment and the unknown wilderness beyond it madeup of the ocean and mountains, from whence the gods could alight to earth using a rainbow. The Māuis challenged the state of the world and changed it. By liberating humans from terror, they civilized them.
