The Nīkau is a palm tree endemic to New Zealand, and the only palm native to New Zealand. It primarily occurs in coastal to lowland forest in warmer regions.
Nīkau palms have had importance in Mäori life. The leaves were used to thatch houses, to wrap food before cooking, and to weave into hats, mats, baskets, and leggings for travelling through rough undergrowth.
