Matakite-o-Maui is in fact a very ancient system of divination for prophesy used by the Maori seers and prophets. It is created around Maui-tikitiki-a-Te Ranga, otherwise known as Maui, a demi-god, a hero by his many feats, and also an ancient ancestor to Maori.
Accounts of Maui's life are portrayed in the form of twelve myths which describe the deeds and useful devices he created to benefit mankind, and these are portrayed in the divination rite using beautifully illustrated Tarot cards.
"In having spent a great part of my life undertaking prophesy readings for others using mainly the conventional tarot cards, I was naturally very excited to discover a traditional Maori form of divination, and even more keen to revive it into a usable form for application into today's world," writes Joyce Paraone Hemana.
"Hemana revives the ancient form of divination for modern times to use for seeking direction, guidance and prophesy. You can either choose the traditional method of sea shells, or use the set of 12 pictorial cards, representing the myths of Maui (which come with the book), beautifully illustrated by Jane Rushton." - Rainbow News
