Tahu-nui-ā-Raki | Damien McNamara & Friends
Tahu-nui-ā-Raki is what Māori call the Aurora Australis, visible most often from the southern-most parts of Aotearoa. Māori believe that the Aurora Australis are lights from the campfires reflecting in the night sky, from ancestors who travelled further south beyond Aotearoa.
