The mark of a high Chief was one who wore the rei puta (whale tooth pendant)

As the teeth of the sperm whale were highly prized because of their rarity. Usually these pendants had simply etched out eyes to form a head at one end. With actual whale teeth being such a rarity, it became common to fashion the tooth form from other materials such as beef bone.
