Hei Whakakai Pounamu


Traditionally made as a bird spear and then adorned as the spear became too short to use as a tool.

One of our oldest taonga and a symbol to remind us of the environment we live in.


L 14cm

W 2.5cm

Bound with black cord.

All of our 'taonga' are created at our Taiwhanga Pounamu (studio) in Te Rohe oo Mataatua, handmade and hand finished,  by the Whaanau Te Kaha.  Due to this, no two pieces are exactly the same.
Pounamu is unique and each taonga has a story to tell...
