http://collections.aucklandmuseum.com/ontology/core/researcherComments KH session 10.08.18 24016 – Te Bunna (protector) te wi ni Baneawa . Ornament Bones from the head of the milk fish… could be? Similar to the bones on the head of the bone fish. These two types of fish are very similar in look and flesh (which is boney). The bones do appear to have fork shaped end suggesting it is a bone rather than teeth. Similar ornaments are made from the bone fish. Protection element (in the name). Either be protection from spirits or a reflection of someone’s social status in society. They would have wealth, riches to have this ornament. Worn like a mark that something there is something special (te bunna) there. In some instances it might be used to cleanse someone of something negative. Certain ways of knotting white coconut leaf together so you can see that they are protecting themselves. Te Bunna gives indication that there is something special and significant it it. Would be that the local clan could be the only ones allowed to harvest those fish/resources from their area. Note that if you are a girl and young you aren’t allowed to eat the head part of the fish.

http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/description Te bunnu te wi ni baneawa. Neck ornament of milk fish bones. This is a neck ornament made from three material components: the bones form the head of the baneawa (milk fish; Chanos chanos), te kora (coconut sennit fibre cord) and glass beads. A neck band of braided benu (coconut husk fiber) has been used to thread a double layer of the baneawa bones. The bones are small. They are shaped like an elongated teardrop where the tapered end is accentuated and in some cases fork-shaped. They are off-white in colour and fragile in form. A drilled circular perforation has been made through the base of the bone where kora has been threaded through. Kora extends beyond the threaded double layer of bones. Three glass beads have been threaded onto these ends. They are sequenced by colour: yellow, dark blue and white. The ends of the kora have been knotted off to prevent any unravelling and the Neck ornament has been left unfastened. The term ‘Te Bunna’ indicates elements of protection from harm or a reflection of the wearers social status in society. In some instances it would be used to cleanse an individual of negativity.
