Hei Tiki + Taiaha Broom Hoodie
Te Hei Tiki
There are many customary uses and meanings attached to hei tiki. One view is that they constitute an ancient form which has been continually reinterpreted, so that many of the current meanings for the form are of comparatively recent origin,the latest iterations of many.
Hei tiki are multifaceted taonga. They embody a range of meanings and purposes on which emphasis can change from day today, moment to moment, or between different historical time periods and tribal localities, depending on social occasion or circumstance.
Set in this unique design, Te Hei Tiki represents a symbol of commemoration and acknowledgement of ancestors. There are many legends in the wool industry who have either departed the industry or left in physical form, of whom their legacy lives on through stories and teachings.
Mau rākau is the martial art that teaches the use of the taiaha and other Māori
weapons in combat. As with other martial arts styles, students of the taiaha spend years mastering the skills of timing, balance and co-ordination necessary to wield the weapon effectively.
Taiaha is represented in the form as a woolhandling broom with this design, bestowed as a tribute to the art of woolhandling - an occupation that requires many years of up-skilling and dedication to become a master of timing, balance and co-ordination.
