|Description:||This animated adaptation of a Maori folktale recounts how the ancient forest god Tane called on various birds to save the forest from a plague of insects. All gave excuses why they could not help. All were punished except the kiwi, which sacrificed its beautiful plumage to spend its life cleaning the forest floor. The kiwi is now New Zealand's national bird.|
