The Maori legend holds that the north island of New Zealand was once a huge fish caught by Maui, the great Mariner, using only a woven line and a bone hook. The fish hook remained lodged in the side of the fish and can be seen today as the outline of Hawke's Bay. The Hei Matau represents Strength, Prosperity, Fertility and a great respect for the Sea.
