The Story

The Toki was one of the most important tool for Māori and were used for any number of everyday jobs such as cutting down trees, carving out waka, digging ground, Moa hunting and food preparations. Because the toki had to be strong to endure the cutting and scraping motions of its use it became a symbol of strength(particularity in time of adversity), courage and fortitude. It was also worn by elders as a symbol of power, wisdom and authority.
