Team name meaning:
Mā te huruhuru, ka rere te manu.
Adorn this bird with feathers so it can fly.
The Kāhu is a majestic bird that holds significant importance and meaning to the rohe we represent. Renowned for its Chief like qualities, the Kāhu represents mana, empowerment, independence and guidance.
A bird of prey with feathers that are often prized in the making of korowai. Giving those who adorn this beautiful piece of kakahu, a sense of pride and a belief that anything is possible.
Using the thermal currents jetting upwards (represented by the koru motif) from the Waitematā our Kahu hangs high in the sky. Its head silhouetted against the northern sun, it listens, it watches, it waits for the perfect time to unleash its full power.
