Embrace the journey of self-discovery

The Maori tribes have a deep connection with the bird fantail, also known as piwakawaka. According to Maori mythology, the fantail possesses the spirit of a mischievous and curious ancestor who guides and protects the living. They believe that encountering a fantail is a sign of good luck and that the bird's actions and behavior can provide valuable guidance for decision making. Maoris embrace the idea of looking to nature for wisdom and insight, acknowledging the interconnectedness of all living beings. The fantail serves as a symbol of their strong relationship with the natural world and reminds them to observe and learn from their surroundings. By respecting and cherishing the bird, Maoris honor their ancestors and preserve their cultural heritage.
