The Story
Tītī(or muttonbird, Puffinus griseus) is the young sooty shearwater seasonally harvested by Māori in the southern parts of Aotearoa. They are then salted and, historically, were kept in kelp bags for eating throughout the year. As an essential food source and a tradeable commodity tītī were considered animals to be respected. This tītī feather resembles the essence of the taonga that these birds are to Māori.
