The Marakihau is another ancient figure whose origins are lost in time. It is believed to represent an ocean Taniwha. A Taniwha is a creature that lives in water and is a guardian of the river, lake or sea. If you treat the water with proper respect it will protect you and help you with a bountiful haul of fish but if you disrespect the water and its creatures the Marakihau will extract a terrible price.
