Māori creation myth

Check out this wonderful telling of the story.  It doesn't even use any words.

Here is another version of the story.
Is this entertaining?
Does it have a more important purpose than just being entertaining?

This myth tells how the world was created.
It also tells us how the North and South Islands and even āoraki came into being.
These myths are an oral history, a way of remembering shared knowledge.
