Maori Legends
Rona and the Moon

Rona and the Moon tells the New Zealand story of how Marama, the Moon, came to look the way it does in our southern skies today.

We meet Rona in a quaint fishing village on the night of a full moon, as she prepares a feast for her family’s return from the great seas. Rona’s sharp temper, quick tongue and impulsive actions have life-changing consequences.
