About The Manaia

The Maori believed the Manaia to be mythical beings who where the messengers between the mortal world and the spirit domain. The Manaia had features which included a bird like head, a human form and the tail of a fish. It was believed that these deities protected the morals and allowed them to connect and communicate with their ancestors whom had passed. The Manaia is generally considered to be of great spiritual importance and protects it's wearer from evil.

Fish Hook / Hei Matau

There have been many forms to depict the hook of Maui. Maori legend tells of how Maui fished up the North Island of New Zealand using his magical hook. Today the matau (hook) is worn for good luck, bringing the wearer peace, prosperity and good health. The matau is also said to provide a safe journey across water.
