What is the maui dolphins's behavior like?
What island should you choose between maui and ohahu?
IMPROVED: Though, I agree with the first poster, the question really is "...choose for what?" I live on Maui. I love Maui, but O'ahu has many thigns that Maui does not. Take into consideration things like: - local customs and living, or more universal life styles - an urban lifestyle (like in Hono), or a more laid back lifestyle even in LaHaina (Maui) - more population (O'ahu) - less population (Maui) - which is prettier - both great) - O'ahu is more expensive - and more........... (first response) Maui without a doubt!

What was the importance of the top knot for maori?
The topknot is called a tikitiki. It's name is derived from the birth of Maui. When Maui was born prematurely and was thought to be stilborn. His mother Taranga cut her topknot off, wrapped Maui in it and threw him out to sea. Hence his name, Maui-tikitiki-a-Taranga (Maui in the topknot of Taranga). As Maui was rescued and raised by Tangaroa, who taught him many magical powers and many myths involve this demigod. The topknot therefore signifies power like that of Maui.
