Hei Tiki

After three decades of journeying with Poutini, Te Kaha now has an understanding of what the tipuna (ancestors) have send forward in time regarding Poutini, Pounamu and Hei Tiki.

This mātauranga that has been entrusted with him is pre-the coming of James Cook and the missionary influence.

When this mātauranga hei tiki is re-seeded back to whānau (family), it creates a legacy of the past, for the present and living, as heirlooms for future bloodlines.

Mere Pounamu and Patu Pounamu are club weapons designed for combat but in todays world it is often ceremonial pieces.

Mere Pounamu, mirror of the Gods, mirror of death.

As Poutini it has Atua presence and its own mirror effect. 

It is harnessing the power of the Universe.

In todays world these Taonga are often used to mark special occasions and/or events that take place. Bringing these Taonga into your whānau to create a legacy that will travel in time .
