Storyboard Text

  • i love you!
  • There were once three mountains that lived in the Hautere forest overlooking Tauranga Moana. Otanewainuku, Puwhenua and the nameless mountain. The nameless mountain had a hopeless crush on Puwhenua but she was meant for Otanewainuku.
  • There seemed like no hope for the nameless one who decided to end it all by drowning himself in the Pacific Ocean, Te Moananui a Kiwa. Calling on the patupaiarehe, the people with magical powers, the nameless one asked them to plait a magical rope and then haul him down towards the ocean.
  • The path created the channel which flows past Tauranga City out to the ocean. By the time they reached the ocean it was very close to day break. The sun rose fixing the nameless one to that place. Being people of the night, the patupaiarehe fled back to the shady depths of forests but not before giving the name Mauao to this mountain which marks the entrance of Tauranga Moana.
