Huia are endemic birds of New Zealand. They're symbolic of nobility and leadership, and of togetherness as they were often seen in breeding pairs.
Considered a rare treasure by Maori, their tail feathers were highly valued and exchanged among tribes as valuable goods. In 1901 the Duke of York was gifted a Huia feather to wear in his hat, sparking the demand in Britain for Huia birds and their feathers. They have since become extinct.
