This myth originated from the Maori tribe of New Zealand. The story is about a woman named Rona who did something bad to the moon, so it took her too far.

Rona was the daughter of the god of the Sea and controlled the tides. One night he was carrying a bowl of tidal water when the road grew dark; the moon had hidden behind some clouds and it was impossible to see anything.

When Rona was walking she stomped her foot on a branch sticking out of the ground and made some nasty comments about the moon.

The moon listened to his comments and placed a curse on the Maori. Then he grabbed Rona with her bowl of water and carried her away. It is said that when Rona hits her bowl, it rains on Earth.

This story represents the influence of the moon on the rain and the waters of the planet, especially in the tides.
