Hei Matau

Scroll down to see 12 different types of the Maori Hei Matau symbols for Safe Passage over Water for $15 apiece.

The Legend and History of the Hei Matau, also included on a card with the necklace:

The Hei Matau has its origins in Maori Legend. The 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. For the Maori, the Hei Matau represents Strength, Prosperity, Fertility and a great respect for the Sea. It is believed to grant Safe Passage over Water and has special significance as a gift.

I love these necklaces, and bought my first ones for myself and two close friends I kayak with. We've worn them pretty much nonstop since that time and they have become a symbol of our love for water and adventure and our bond as friends. I hope you or anyone you decide to give them to get as much out of the Hei Matau as we have.

The Hei Matau each come on a necklace cord you can adjust to fit anyone, with an informational card describing the meaning of the symbol.
