Huia Feather Necklace

Tania Tupu

Huia Feather Necklace by Tania Tupu

The extinct Huia bird sadly silenced before our generation could hear their song.

A pendant symbolising how precious it is for all wahine to bring balance to the world while in positions of leadership. 

A feather of a huia was given as a token of friendship and respect and worn by high ranking chiefs symbolizing leadership and mana.

The most sacred bird of all of Tane's children, graceful, vulnerable and socially quiet, a bird that bonded in pairs for life. 

Poutama Porourangi tukutuku design on the huia feather represents the search for knowledge and was a pattern introduced by Tania's ancestor Sir Apirana Ngata representing their famous ancestor Porourangi of Ngati Porou.  

Shaped like the tukutuku panels that adorn the walls of our wharenui

Handcrafted 3 Dimensional resin pendant
