The Māori people were great mariners and fishermen, so the Matau is therefore one of the most powerful symbols used in Māori culture as it represents prosperity, abundance and fertility. 

It also is said to provide good luck and safety when traveling over water.
The wearer of a Hei-Matau is seen as a provider and protector who is strong willed and determined to succeed in life.
