The Pou Tiri Ao Are Appointed

Now at this period the attention of Taane te Waananga a Rangi and his brethren was turned to the separation of the Pou Tiri Ao to their different spheres of action, in their separate places, by twos and threes, to each plane of the earth, the heavens, and the ocean.

Thus was the work directed; and the valuable contents of the Kete were distributed.

The Kete contained all knowledge and directions for government of the world and its contents, so some branches were allocated to the different Pou Tiri Ao to enable them to rule in their separate spheres, and thus become the presiding deities of different classes of phenomena.
