Te Ipu Whakahauā

Te Ipu refers to the bowl that one can draw sustenance from or provide sustenance to.
Whakahauā refers to the wind that emerges to form the awhiowhio (whirlwind) which travels both ways, up and down.
The key to this name Te Ipu Whakahauā is reciprocation between Papatūānuku (Earth Mother) and Ranginui (the Sky Father).
