Feathers have a significant cultural importance in Maori culture and are often used as symbols of status, rank, and power. In traditional Maori thought, many birds were seen as chiefly and their feathers were highly prized and used as an adornment for high-born people. The feathers of certain birds were also used in the making of cloaks and other ceremonial garments, and were often given as gifts to signify respect and honor. The Maori people believed that the feathers of certain birds had special powers and were seen as a symbol of the divine. Feathers continue to be an important element in Maori art and jewelry, and are often used to represent the beauty and majesty of the natural world.
