When it was night, there was a pitch black sky over lake taupo. In the lake there lived a huge taniwha and he could only pop out when it’s night. Then in a village there lived a brave warrior named Tamarereti and he wasn’t scared of the dark. When it was day his belly was rumbling with hunger so he had to grab his kete and he saw that there was no food, he had set off fishing. Tamarereti went fishing he caught three large fish and then he was tired so he fell asleep in the waka. The waka beached itself on land and Tamarereti woke up. He got out of the waka and set afire by a tree and he cooked his three large fish. After he ate the fish out of the corner of his eyes he could see some shining pebbles and then he picked up as many pebbles as he could and he went into his waka. As he sailed he threw the pebbles as far as he could up in the sky so he could make a safe way home. The taniwha couldn't come because of the lights and the taniwha can’t come out when it’s light. When he threw the glistening pebbles in the sky they became stars.
