Hei Matau (fish hooks) are simple, ingenious, and beautifully constructed. The huge variety of hooks represent the many kinds of fish caught as well as the many techniques used.

The hei matau is taonga (a cultural treasure). It represents not only Aotearoa (New Zealand), but also prosperity, fertility and safe passage over water.

These lures were trolled behind waka (canoes) in estuaries or close to coastlines using lines of finely plaited muka (flax fiber).
