The manu (kite) had many purposes. It was flown as an omen to see whether a pa (fortification) could be sacked or to trick warriors to their deaths, but ultimately was used as a means of amusement. The kite, among other activities such as songs, dance, games and puppets, lifted the spirits of the young and old. Laughter, like the kite, elevated their inner being up high into the realm of Ranginui (sky father).
