              Ko Tawhaki Nui a Hema: Ana Mahi Whakahirahira recalls the miraculous life of Tawhaki. Similar to Maui, Tawhaki was a demigod who possessed mighty powers. Tawhaki almost died at the hands of his brothers-in-law but was found by his wife Hine-piripiri and revived. This near-death e...xperience revealed Tawhaki's status as a demigod, and from this point Tawhaki continued to use his powers and gifts to help those around him in ways no human could. This book explores many of these stories, including those of Tawhaki restoring sight to his blind grandmother and climbing the heavens to find his wife and child.
