Ariki is a high chief, a lord, a leader or the first-born in a high ranking family.

The Hei-Tiki is an ornamental pendant of the Maori of New Zealand and is considered a ‘taonga’, meaning a treasure or anything highly prized.

According to one tradition, Tiki was the first man born to the Maori Gods, Rangi & Papa and is revered as the bringer of knowledge. It has also been thought that the Hei Tiki is the image of a God, ‘Hei’ meaning to wear around the neck and ‘Tiki’ being the name of the Maori God who created all things.
