Maui Fata

Maui fata

(altar-raising), a religious ceremony in Polynesia. Numbers of figs, with abundance of plantains, were placed upon the altars, which were-newly ornamented with branches of the sacred miro, and yellow leaves of the cocoanut-tree. These rites extended to every marae in the island, and were designed to secure rain and fertility for the country gained by conquest or recovered from invasion.
