Course 4

The Ti Kouka (Cabbage Tree) is a bit of an icon/symbol in Canterbury.  It has the ability to re-sprout from the base after being cut down - perhaps this is why it is used as a boundary marker and marker of burial grounds and other sacred/tapu places.

Ti Kouka is found in the Canterbury plains and is used for clothing, especially sandals.

Ka whati te ki, ka wana te ti, ka rito te ti
The ti that is broken down sends forth a young shoot 
that develops and forms a new crown of leaves
