Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A long time ago, before the Maori came to New Zealand, the patuapaiarehe lived on Ngongotaha Mountain near Rotorua. They were a peaceful people who loved to sing and dance and their only fear was that the giant Tipua who lived in the Kaimai mountains would, one day, decide to attack them and steal their lands. When the fateful day finally arrived and the Tipua were heard marching through the forest towards Ngongotaha, the patuapaiarehe had to rely on the cunning of their wise tohunga to cast the ultimate spell and save the lands around Rotorua.
