Parata Kaitiaki White
A guardian watching over you
Alert and watchful, a parata is a human-style face, usually with moko (facial tattoo). It can represents a significant ancestor or influential person. Hang them in your home to remember loved ones who are gone. Give them as gifts in gratitude, farewell, or congratulations.
A parata is a representation of Māori culture that will be recognised anywhere in the world.
