Uses: Nikau palms have always been important in Māori life and the leaves were used to thatch houses, wrap food before cooking, woven into hats, mats, baskets, and leggings for walking through the undergrowth. The inner heart of the palm has a light laxative effect and was used as a medical treatment for pregnant women, relaxing the pelvic ligaments before childbirth and was also useful in cases of diarrhoea.
