Te Ika a Māui (The Fish of Maui)

Māui's brothers always refused to take him fishing with them and would always leave him behind. Māui came up with a plan to hide in the bottom of the canoe. When his brothers headed out to fish, he surprised them. His brothers refused to share their bait and Māui used the jawbone of his ancestors to attract the greatest fish of all.
