The Toki Poutangata is a ceremonial adze used to make the first cuts when carving a sacred sculpture for a meeting house or felling a great tree used to carve a special Waka or great canoe.
It is a symbol of authority and leadership within the tribe so was only carried by the chiefs and other very important members of a tribe so they became very sacred Taonga as they were passed down the generations.
