Manu Tukutuku - Kites

Māori kites are known as manu tukutuku, manu aute, or pākau. The word manu means both kite and bird. They were flown for fun, to communicate with people far away, to predict success in battle, or to find an enemy. Kites are an important part of Matariki (Māori New Year) celebrations.
