The Hei Matau/ Fish hook symbol originates from Maori legend in which the demigod, Maui, pulls the north island of New Zealand from the ocean using a woven line and fish hook.

Traditionally the Hei Matau was used as a tool to catch kaimoana (seafood), to feed and nourish Maori. It also signifies the importance of their relationship to Tangaroa (God of the Sea).
