Frank Nash Murderer who is he. He doesn't he's just a little prankster and one of the away he dies is when he's trying to become immortal. And the way decides to do this is to enter the goddess of death who scored Nui Teppo to get in through join up pluck out her heart on the way up to her mouth and emerged from her mouth and apparently this will reverse the birth process and make them immortal identical scientifically accurate.

He said that he didn't his pranks. Didn't kill anyone. I think that is true. Perhaps I don't know of any but did but he did. Once go fishing with a guy called era ru who was the husband suspended his sister and he was so annoyed with Arou- Oru that he turned him into a dog. ooh that was the first ever Doug. And that's what dogs come from because 'cause Maui actually if you know the song from WanNa you're welcome which is big song. It's all about the things which he did. So He created the moon and the sun and the wind and all these different different things and he pulls the islands up from the ocean floor didn't he he had he had a magic jawbone which according to some of the most is the Jawbone of his grandmother bird is also so quite big so she must have been huge and he did things useful things with it so he used as a Fishhook to pull up islands from the ocean floor and actually the names of North Island and South Island in New Zealand. Now are Tika our Maui. Anti Watteau Maui.

Upton Brian to a very high peak and chuck it up. There would be so annoying. This guy was not loaded so it wouldn't you head on it but you have to fly a drone. Yeah so another character in Moana is to feces got comes up at the end. She's actually based on Pella. Who is a genuine goddess in Hawaiian mythology? And she's not the most important. God escalated volcanoes stuff like that was like the big volcano volcano in Hawaii is called Mount Pelee appeal has that's kind of her embodiment human too I pay tribute to it when you go there.

And eventually she won all the arguments and he was forced to surrender and turned himself into a fish. Oh and that is a Hawaiian fish. And it's the one with the best name.
