The Maori of New Zealand, tell of The ''Ponaturi'' as being fierce ''Goblin-like'' Creatures, who live ''under The Sea''. At nightime, The Ponaturi arise and come ashore to terrorize The Tribe. When the Sun come up however, They must return to The Sea, or they will burn up. It was a common matter to line the shore with torches at nighttime to ward off any attacks by The Ponaturi.
