Te ngahere Forest lore

In Maori tradition, the forest providing necessities of life to their people was created by the god Tane. The maories and the forest were connected in such a vitally amd spiritualy way.
They named the forest ngahere, ngherehere, nehenehe, ngahengahe, wao, waonui and waoku.

This serie is a tribute coming from many walks I had in those places and the feeling that somehow I was always observed by other creatures or maybe old spirits from maories people still living withing thoses trees
