    • In the Māori creation pūrākau (story), Tāne’s quest was to ascend to the heavenly realms to retrieve three kete (baskets) of knowledge to help humankind. The baskets, or kete were:
      - the kete-aronui which held all the knowledge that could help mankind
      - the kete-tuauri which held the knowledge of ritual, memory and prayer
      - the kete-tuatea which contained knowledge of evil or makutu, which was harmful to mankind.
