Rarohenga Play

1. (location) underworld, nether-world - the place where the spirits of the dead go.

Te Pae-rangi: Ko te pakanga nui tēnei a nga tamariki a Rangi rāua ko Papa, arā a ngā atua Māori, ki a rātau anō; nā Whiro-te-tipua i whakatipu. Nā ka hinga a Whiro rātau ko tana ope; ko te take tēnā i heke ai a Whiro ki Rarohenga, ki te Muriwai-hou, arā ki Te Rēinga (M 2006:14). / Te Pae-rangi: This was the great battle of the children of Rangi and Papa, that is of the Māori atua, amongst themselves; it was Whiro-te-tipua who instigated it.
