Hei toki
The 'hei toki' represents strength, authority and mana. In the early days the toki (adze) was used as a tool. Nowadays it is a ceremonial treasure - taonga representing courage and strength in hard times. The toki represents great power and the toki were often gifted to warriors and chiefs. 

Moko
A moko is a Maori facial tattoo. Every moko contains ancestral and tribal messages specific to the wearer of the moko.
