Ae-te-Vananga was an ancient ancestor (Tupuna) of the Monga kopu tangata of Ureia. It would only appear to one of its descendants in the dead of night, in the form of a large karaoa (moray eel) in the branches of a tree such as a pandanas tree and warn the descendant of imminent danger.
Here Ae-te-Vananga's haunting apparition appears and warns of a future cyclone that will threaten the safety of Ureia and Araura enua (the people of Aitutaki).
