Niue has issued four stamps on 7th August 2015 that depicts the traditional weapons of the island. Niuean weapons required skill and ingenuity in both creation and use. They were carefully crafted from natural materials found on the island, and required strength and accuracy to be used effectively. The four stamps in this issue look at two types of weapon – katoua (clubs) and tao (spears).
