Aoraki/ Mount Cook #legend русский ⏬ According to Māori #legend , #Aoraki was a young boy who, along with his three brothers, were the sons of Rakinui, the Sky Father. On their voyage around the Papatuanuku, the Earth Mother, their canoe became stranded on a reef and tilted. Aoraki and his brothers climbed onto the top side of their canoe. However, the south wind froze them and turned them to stone. Their canoe became the Te Waka o Aoraki, the #SouthIsland , and their prows, the Marlborough Sounds. Aoraki, the tallest, became the highest peak, and his brothers created the Kā Tiritiri o te Moana, the #SouthernAlps . The Ngāi Tahu, the main iwi (tribe) of New Zealand's southern region, consider Aoraki as the most sacred of the ancestors that they had descended from. Aoraki brings the iwi with its sense of community and purpose, and remains the physical form of Aoraki and the link between the worlds of the supernatural and nature. #ГораКука священна для маори и совсем не удивительно, что о ее происхождении существует красивая #легенда , которая повествует о том, как сыновья Ранги и Папа (в мифологии народа #маори - отец-небо и мать-земля) #Аораки и трое его братьев отправились в путешествие и их вака села на мель на рифе и накренилась. Дабы не утонуть, они взобрались на нос судна, но ледяной ветер превратил их в камень – вака стала островом, а братья горными вершинами. Так как Аораки был самым высоким из братьев, наивысший пик и получил название «гора Аораки». Остров же маори стали называть Те Вака Аораки. В 1851 году капитан Джон Лорт Стокс дал горе английское название - Mount Cook, в честь знаменитого исследователя и первооткрывателя Джемса Кука. В 1998 году был принят закон, согласно которому правительство Новой Зеландии обязалось включить в название вершины ее историческое название, и гора Кука была переименована в Аораки/Маунт-Кук. #newzealandguide #purenewzealand #clouds #beautifulnewzealand #beautyaroundus #mountainsview #discovernz #mynzlife #nzguide #mountcook #новаязеландия_инфо #новаязеландия_южныйостров #новаязеландия #красотавокругнас #красивыйвид #lategram #16weeks #nofilter #explorenz #explorenewxealand #hookerwalley #облака .
