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 but are a reminder of New Zealand's unique species and history.
