Tupu-a-rangi represents the forest, birds, berries and trees. Waiti means the creatures in the freshwater and everything in it like eels. Waita represents all the creatures in the salt waters and all the creatures in there like fish and sharks. Waipuna rangi means water from the sky like rain. Ururangi is the star of the winds. Hiwi i te rangi is the youngest star and it means to send our wishes for the year.
