The Polynesians of today maintain the heritage and traditions of their Maori ancestors. Oral history recounts the adventures of gods and warriors in colorful legends. The open-air sanctuaries called Marae were once the center of power in ancient Polynesia. These large, sacred stone structures, akin to temples, hosted the important events of the times including the worship of the gods, peace treaties, celebrations of war, and the launch of voyages to colonize distant lands.
