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. 
The ‘manaia’ is a spiritual guardian and protects against evil.
