About 'Nga Mahi Matatoa a Hina raua ko Maui' - 'The Adventures of Hina and Maui'

When Robyn Kahukiwa observed her mokopuna playing with Action Man, Superman and Wonder Woman she was determined to give them their own super hero characters that would inspire their imagination form their own culture and experience. Robyn Kahukiwa created her Super Heroes series featuring the dynamic duo with their Polynesian whakapapa, brother and sister Hina and Maui. Te Hotu Manawa Māori was so inspired by Robyn's Supa Heroes that, with her permission, they produced these four books that further supported the super hero adventuers of Hina and Maui.
