Māori Origins of Tā Moko/Te Pū o Tā Moko:  Whaka-rūau-Moko, (god/atua of earthquakes and volcanic activity), the youngest child of Rangi-nui and Papa-tū-ānuku was responsible for the deep uneven grooves left within the surface terrain of his mother while still within her whare tangata. The trembling of his current scarred the earth creating the first sacred forms of Moko. Rūaumoko is also known as Rūaimoko, Whakarūaumoko also Rūaimokoroa.
