Hutia te rito o te harakeke
Kei hea te komako e kō?
Kī mai ki ahau
He aha te mea nui?
Māku e kī atu

He tangata, he tangata, he tangata, hī!

If you pluck out the centre shoot of the flax
Where will the bellbird sing?
If you ask me
What is the most important thing in the world?
I will reply

People, people, people!.

Description

Women who were skilled in the traditional art of weaving were, and still are highly valued within Maori society. They created not only pieces for decorative purposes but for protection from weather, weaponry in war and special pieces that suited particular tasks for the purpose of food gathering and storage.

The highly decorated korowai or cloaks were worn by chiefs and were a symbol of their prestige and power.
