The Taiaha is a traditional close combat, hand held Maori Weapon carved in the form of an ancestor.  In Maori Weapons the tongue represents oratory skills, the eyes to keep alert, and the feathers adorn the head to distract opponents. The Taiaha is a very special Maori Carving and a treasure that is passed down from generation to generation.
