Brooke and Nathan's Treasures

Today Brooke brought some treasures from home.  Her Dad let her bring a patu and taiaha that have been specially carved for him by his Great Uncle.  They are weapons that can be used for defending yourself and attacking others.  The carvings have paua shell decorations.

She also brought along a kete that her aunt gave her for her birthday.  They used to use kiwi feathers for the decorations but because Kiwi are so precious now duck feathers are used instead.  Brooke bought the pois at a shop in Rotorua last year.  She showed us her poi skills - fantastic!
