Maui is a true Pasifika Superhero! There are Maui stories throughout the Pacific and Aotearoa and Samoa has a Maui too. His other name is Ti’iti’i. As in Niue and New Zealand, he’s credited with discovering fire after catching his father holding out with cooked food. A father holding out with cooked food … hmmm reminds me of that time I secretly went to KFC when everyone was asleep
You can read more about how Ti’iti’i discovered fire and his one on one battle with Mafui’e in my upcoming book on Samoan heroes.
