DESCRIPTION AND MEANING:

Tiaki is translated into "care", meaning to take care for someone. This wrist band includes several protection and auspicious symbols and has to be resized for the opposite edges to touch. The two tikis (protection) must be positioned on the inside and outside of the wrist; te manaias are guardian angels, and their three fingers represent balance between sky, earth and water, whereas fish hooks symbolize wealth and abundance, and are a good omen for everyone being one day able to fish his own island outof the sea, likeMaui did.

Shark teeth symbolize adaptability and protection on the water.
