Pumahara Manaia


Recommended Posts

Kia ora Peeps. Latest piece for your viewing. Bit quiet around here lately. Hope this finds you all well.


Whalebone amulet used as an aid for reciting whakapapa. The manaia is there as a spiritual guardian and a conduit for contacting our tipuna (ancestors). The notching a representation of the rich whakapapa (genealogy) we all hold.


Every now and then, take a little time to reflect on your past. Share with your tamariki and mokopuna (children and grandchildren) stories of your tipuna. Knowledge from the past can help better prepare them for the future.
